Born + bred
who we are
THE CALIFORNIA POPPIES is the brain child of designer, photographer and obsessive vintage hoarder, Liz N. As a young person growing up in Northern California, she was indelibly marked by the landscape of her home state and is Forever inspired by it’s unique history. THE CALIFORNIA POPPIES is equal parts gold rush and summer of love, rock and roll revolution and the land of milk and honey. it’s a golden state of mind just East of Eden and West of everything else, Welcome to el dorado.
A CALIFORNIA NATIVE, LIZ N. IS THE HEAD OF HAIR BEHIND THE CALIFORNIA POPPIES. BORN IN THE SACRAMENTO DELTA AND RAISED IN THE WOODS AND WATERS OF Lake Tahoe, HER PASSION FOR CAPTURING THE BEAUTY IN LIFE BEGAN AT A YOUNG AGE WITH AN EARLY OBSESSION WITH ART, WRITING AND COLLECTING LOVELY THINGS. FROM HER BEGINNINGS AS A NOVICE PHOTOGRAPHER WITH HER AUNTS OLD FILM CAMERA, SHE KNEW WITHOUT QUESTION THAT HER LIFES WORK WOULD BE IN THE PURSUIT OF CAPTURING BEAUTY WHEREVER SHE SAW IT; IN THE PEOPLE AND PLACES AND THINGS SHE ENCOUNTERED.
