Penny Verdich cont.

I spent my professional life in the world of Education but my interest in and love of art goes back as far as I can remember. My abstract paintings capture the energy and the beauty of the natural environment. Central to my practice is the creation of a sense of place through colour, tone, line and shape so that the viewer  is drawn into the landscape. I am  particularly drawn to vibrant colours but also use a limited, more muted palette to create more subtly and harmony in my work.
