Capturing the raw beauty and fragility of the female form, Penny’s work is a study in self-love, authenticity, and the acceptance of imperfection. “Women can be extremely critical of their outward appearance as we age” she says. “My work reflects that deeply personal struggle and emboldens viewers to transform their relationship with themselves. I distress figurative photographs with water, wine, and natural elements to create unique expressions of our physical declination and ephemerality while unveiling profound truths about how we see ourselves.”
