Penny’s work is concerned with the process of making and intangible cultural heritage. She is interested in using traditional crafts in new settings bringing them to new audiences and working in a range of materials. Her first career was in Hospitality, Hotels and Restaurants although she carried a lifelong love of making, sewing and embroidery from an early age. A desire for a change in direction led her to pursue a creative career full time. She was selected a member of Prism Textiles in 2017 and works from a studio in Oxford.
