Penny Hodson produces portraits with broad gestural marks to suggest area of shadow combined with a more controlled approach to capture the form with areas of light and shade. This instinctive and lively approach is matched with intricate observations of the subtleties found within skin tone.
Penny took an interest in Art from an early age and gained a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art from the University of Hertfordshire in 1995. With a background in model making Penny has focused more on figure drawing and portraiture since her daughter started school, and has been attending regular groups and workshops over the past five years to further develop her style and technique.
Born in the Midlands in 1970, Penny now lives and works in Edinburgh.
