Penny Forrest

There is a very important word in Danish, hygge (hoogah), that does not translate directly into English. The closest we can come is "cozy". Hygge is an important concept in Denmark where the winters are long and dark. Hygge is about creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for friends and family. Penny tries to capture this in her work by creating cozy and inviting spaces for viewers to dive into.

She finds she is increasingly inspired by the everyday and ordinary. She seeks beauty in the mundane tasks and clutter of daily life — the little things we take for granted can mean the most and she tries to share that vision with other like-minded souls.
