Penelope says “I am influenced by colours and Maria Shindler’s ideas on colour form and composition”
“My abstracts and Landscapes are inspired by nature and asymmetrical dimensions as a response to the idea of the Golden Ratio: natures magic irrational fraction number called ‘Phi’. To me it means infinity and the endless possibilities of creative responses, a freedom of expression where I feel I am nature and nothing can be incorrect.”
