Penny Rees Lives and works in Leominster, a town on the very edge of the Welsh Marches. She studied Fine Art at Herefordshire College of Art and Design, she also gained diplomas in Specialist Paint Finishes and Furniture Restoration and Finishing.
“Paint, especially oil paint, how it moves, what happens to it, the colour and smell, fill my working day. Each painting is a mix of stark line, vibrant colour and heavy impasto. Flowers, landscapes, boats, sheds have a tentative start, move through muddled times, before appearing at last the work I wish it to be. My emotional response to the world around me is fairly obvious in my painterly works which are ebullient in form and colour, endeavouring to encapsulate the surge of life”.
Happily for me there are many Collectors who share and love my work with passion, both here in the UK and abroad.’
