Poppy Jones

Poppy Jones (b. 1985, London) is a British artist based in Bexhill-on-Sea. The artist works primarily with traditional printmaking techniques, tools and materials together with painting, indelibly imprinting passing moments in time on to surfaces traditionally common to clothing (suede, silk or leather). Where we might consider such moments fleeting, Poppy makes them last forever.
