Penny seeks beauty in the mundane tasks and clutter of daily life and strives to share her vision of the world with other like-minded souls. Penny’s work is an invitation to slow down, look around, and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us daily in our busy and cluttered lives.
Her artistic process is somewhat like a complicated crossword puzzle, although it’s even more complex than that. She starts out covering the canvas with black paint. This part of the process can be very visceral. She uses a variety of tools as well as my hands to do this. After she is satisfied with the texture, paint starts going on from dark to light. She can’t rush this, can’t anticipate the light. Her paintings take many, many layers of color with the lightest being last.
