My Occupation Fine Artist
My Bio As someone once put it, "...the fascinating thing about her work is that the characters, the edginess, and the stories that come from the moodscapes and expressive abstract pieces look like pieces one might expect from a rough boozer in their 60s. Yet, Pennington is not a jaded middle-aged artist who's lived too much. Looking at her, you'd never expect to see this edginess or knowledge about life beyond the mainstream, conservative, happy-go-lucky personality she otherwise has. The balance between the pleasant versus the tense, dark pieces clearly proves that the work isn't simply coming from somebody who is disturbed, but from someone who has paid attention to things of this world that are disturbing and need paying attention to. She acknowledges the beautiful and the ugly with amazing ease."

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
...the next art collection. The book that I just published, " What if You Just Want to See What Happens?" expands upon my favorite works from 2001-2007. It explains my processes, thoughts, and messages thus far.

I can't wait to see what unfolds as I create my newest body of work!
