Hi! We are Joe and Clare; artists and makers, partners in life and business, proud parents to Hugo (human) and Nina (canine) and lovers of pretty much all things creative.
Joe is a painter, printmaker, musician, furniture builder and contractor. He’s also a kickass pie maker and home cook, fixer of all the broken things and a damn good dancer.
Clare is a food and lifestyle photographer, an obsessive prop collector, a newbie sewer and wannabe potter. She is a master salad maker, a fan of interior design and a big believer in the importance of good lighting.
We have been living, working and collaborating together for 20 years and are so excited about this new business. Poppy Bee Surfaces is an opportunity to combine our skills and experience and create innovative photo surfaces that are perfect for food and product photographers. All of our backgrounds are created by us in our Vermont studio.
We hope you love what you see!

"Light, portable, dynamic and durable photo surfaces. Truly, works of art. I have now purchased MANY as I look to downsize my (now unnecessary collection of) rusted metals and heavy marble slabs. I cannot recommend Poppy Bee Surfaces enough!"
