Penelope's paintings are a reflection of her surroundings. She paints contemporary still-lifes and interiors. Her inspiration often begins in social settings such as candle lit restaurants, wineries and trendy lounges. She often depicts the way a wineglass or table fork reflects the surrounding atmosphere and light. By painting her subjects larger-than-life, emphasizing abstracted shapes (usually found in distortions and reflections of glass and metal), skewing the perspective, and by pushing color Penelope offers her viewers new and interesting ways to perceive commonly encountered places and objects.
Penelope received her BFA in Fine Art from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where she lived for seven years. Her passion for wine began during her college years while she worked in wine bars and tasting rooms. She also visited wine country often to paint and explore the many Northern California appellations. Penelope's love and growing knowledge of wine continues to be a source of inspiration in her work.
