We are sisters, the two youngest in a family of five children. Two Poppies is a place where we will be sharing our “art and soul” ~ our creative expressions, personal inspirations, thoughts and dreams. Lynne is a photographer, and we both like to create using all sorts of other artistic media.
Lynne is a mom of four who bounces all over the country (especially the South) with her Air Force pilot hubby and loves discovering new places to travel and adventure everywhere they live. She loves capturing REAL LIFE with her camera and has been featured on several photography sites and one of her images was selected for the ART of Photography Show in San Diego, California. Most of all she loves seeing the world in new ways with her little family!
Suzee has two lovely animal- & nature-loving girls (we’d have a farm near a forest and the ocean if they had their way) and is married to her fellow entrepreneurial husband. She enjoys yoga (ohm…), being creative (especially painting and mixed media), traveling, being silly with her family (think running through the sprinklers), and everything outdoors and in nature.
Our paths have included teaching (Lynne was a bilingual English/Spanish kindergarten teacher) and graphic design (Suzee has been in this field for many moons & was partner in a design group). We currently own and operate Multicultural Kids, which sells all kinds of products that encourage children to discover and appreciate the amazing world and all of its people. We feel like all of this experience gives us a very unique perspective in publishing ~ with the connection to children’s literature and the design aesthetic being very aligned with our lives’ journeys.
We recently published our first book, Beautiful Rainbow World ~ a photography book with carefully selected images of children from around the globe. A gift from our hearts to the world. So exciting!
