About the Artist

Penny studies the delicacy of the female form, reflecting on our self-acceptance as we age. She hopes to cast aside culture’s definition of beauty and celebrate the eternal essence shining through from within. Photographs of female figures are exposed to fresh rainwater, which “paints” ethereal bursts and waves across each image. Finally, the ephemeral moments are preserved with a thin layer of beeswax. Each is a unique, fleeting figure expressed in layered moments of color, water and time.
