ABOUT Penny

An artisan based in regional NSW, Penny particularly loves creating pieces for the garden and is commissioned both locally and beyond (most recently submitting work for The Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney). She works with locally sourced willow to sculpt woven objects from animals through to abstract shapes. Penny frequently runs sold out workshops, particularly during months most seasonally appropriate to working with her chosen medium.
