Artist Bio

Penny is originally from England and lived in several countries before moving to Texas in 1977.   After taking an early retirement opportunity in 1997 she concentrated on creative interests, especially painting in both watercolor and acrylic, as well as travel overseas.   She has studied art with accomplished teachers in Australia, in Austin and in Bozeman Montana.   She finds inspiration in the varied landscapes from her travel experiences and the natural beauty of plants, birds and animals.    More recently she has developed an interest in portrait painting including several famous musicians.

Penny also makes jewelry and mosaics, and her work has been sold in Texas, Montana and Perth, Australia.
