Penny trained in Art at Cumbria College of Art & Design prior to a Degree in Graphic Design at Bristol Polytechnic. She initially worked as a designer in London and Cumbria before locating to South West Scotland to teach illustration and design at HND level.

Inspiration for Penny’s work comes from her garden, cats and time spent in the hills and mountains of Britain and Europe.

Penny is a member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society and has had work selected for exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London; ICA, London; and the Cumberland Pencil Museum, Keswick.
