About Penelope

Penelope paints timeless, realistic portraits of children that capture their unique character and spirit. Each piece is a beautiful heirloom to be treasured by your family now and for generations to come. 

Through thoughtful composition, highly detailed brush strokes and careful use of light and shadow, Penelope's portraits are both captivating and one of a kind.

Her realistic still life and figurative paintings explore the ways that objects and moments can be instilled in memory. Inspired by found objects and vintage story book illustrations, her paintings evoke a sense of eerie nostalgia, of moments lost and found again.

Penelope was awarded the Cliftons Art Prize in 2014, and has been a finalist in various prizes including the Shirley Hannan Portrait Prize (2014), and the Yen Female Art Award (2016, 2014).
