A log protruding out of the water provides an ideal sunbathing opportunity for a group of Red-eared slider turtles. As you near the spot, the reptiles warily watch your approach and prepare for a quick dart to the safety of the stream if necessary.

"Pen's paintings often are a snapshot in the life of her subjects, giving you a glimpse into the animal's often unnoticed daily life. Her contemporary imagery reflects an influence from the Pacific Northwest Coast native art while remaining a distinctive style of her own. Her love for nature is presented in each of her unique paintings."

—Padraic Brady

edition prints

Prints are produced on acid-free premium papers using Canon Lucia archival pigmentation inks. This process insures your prints will retain their original color for decades to come. I hand-sign and number each print and enclose them in a clear acrylic sleeve to protect them until you are ready to have them framed.

I love the rain, being snowed in, cats, campfires, sleeping in a sleeping bag, taking care of those I love, getting up before the sun to work on my art.

With my art, I want to capture the spirit and personality of my subjects. I enjoy going beyond realism in trying to bring out characteristics of the subject with line, form, and color. I enjoy the feeling of working and reworking a section of a painting, over and over, then making just the right stroke and seeing it come together. When I sit down at my drawing table—this is what I want to do. I love the challenge of finding that "something" in the subject that I can portray in my own way.

 

This is who I am through ink and paint.
