Based in the Yorkshire Dales, Penny’s studio gives wide open windswept views of mountains, moorlands and mist; her work is about the little things that make up that landscape of freedom, the places where you feel the full force of wind and weather and find some perspective on life. She incorporates elements of the landscape into the paintings, applying earth and grit to surfaces and using paint ground from locally sourced stone. She often works outside to express a sense of place and the feeling of the landscape.

Being drawn to water she paints regularly from the coast preferring rocky coastlines and rougher seas where she spends hours watching the water move over and between obstacles. By painting directly on the shoreline seaweed, sand and spray are windblown into the work creating texture and atmosphere. Layers are later built up back in the studio, worked from memories and sketches, never photographs which remove the immediacy of the feel of the place.

Her Fine Art degree, MA and many years teaching helped develop her paintings and printmaking, each material feeds back into the other, the layering, overprinting and intaglio techniques are present in all.
