When Penny was little, she would lay in bed at nap time tracing every object in her room with her eyes. She would draw them in her mind so she would never forget what they were. This drawing without pen or pencil was invaluable to the future artist.
Having no formal art training, the techniques Penny uses she learned through trial and error. It is discovering these techniques, on her own, that makes the journey to the completion of a painting satisfying to her.
Today, Penny paints mostly with oil's in a water color fashion. Communicating with paper and paint, to those around her, through her works.
