Positive + creative vibes: Because positivity spreads, and creativity brings joy

Be bold, be bright: 
Pursue your passions, be confident, do you. You can do anything.

Burritos are life:  
Okay...maybe not life. But pretty close.

 I'M PAIGE POPPE, and i'm an artist.

That's the short answer. 

The long answer is that I'm a 24-year-old passionate creative. 

I have a versatile background; holding a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and having pursued my art career full-time for the past 2 years.  

I work each day to chase my passion for art, spreading joy, color, and desert magic.

I'm influenced and inspired by:

the Arizona desert that I live & work in.
 The time I spent studying architecture in Copenhagen. 
The sound a graphite pencil makes on the page. 

The texture of creamy, buttery paint. 
A blank wood panel that is ready to be painted on and brought to life. 

A fresh palette of watercolor paints.

You'll never find me sitting still. I'm constantly creating!
(Which may be due to all the iced coffee I drink...but it's mostly my natural creative energy).


I am also grateful to have a history of wonderful clients.

I've designed products, logos, branding, packaging, and wedding suites for them, 

and have also coached a collection of artists on their creative business.

And one more piece of my life is this guy! Jake is my best friend of 6 years and boyfriend of 2 of those years.

Jake is a chemist and environmental engineer. While he puts up with my paint splatters, I try to figure out what the heck molecular spectroscopy is. Like seriously...what? How does his brain work

We love living our messy, crazy-busy, opposite-brained lives together.

I also have videos + talks that were recorded and will help you get to know my vision + work a little better. 

The video below speaks a lot about my art,

and I was also recently interviewed by one of my favorite podcasts, Make it Happen by Jen Carrington.
If you'd like to hear my story, listen to our episode here. 

I am also proud to have collaborated + partnered with other wonderful brands.

My most recent release is a watercolor prickly pear yoga mat, in collaboration with DAT MAT.
Check out our "DAT MAT x Paige Poppe Art" Yoga Mat here!

If you need me, I'll be at my desk painting, creating, dreaming, and filming.

Until then, 

I'm sending all of my positive + creative vibes your way!
