Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Pennie Pomroy

Pennie Pomroy’s artworks explore what is often lost in adult life: a vivid sense of imagination and whimsy. Juxtaposing fantasy with the everyday, her sumptuous paintings are reminiscent of the inspired nonsense of Alice in Wonderland, evoking an uninhibited expression of youthful exuberance. 

“Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast” - Lewis Carroll

A playground of animals and people comes to life revealing the beauty and magic that can be created by simply allowing worlds to be imagined. Her current series of heroines and their animal counterparts uses the language of feathers and fur to expose the human personality beneath. 

Based in Sydney, Pennie has studied both internationally and in Australia, completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (painting) at the National Art School in 2003. Using a variety of media, including oil painting, printmaking and silver jewellery, she enjoys developing ideas through different forms. Her jewellery combines classical elegance often with a playful twist. Working in sterling silver, titanium, enamel and felt there is a rigor to her technique that ensures a superb finish and original style. Pennie has also communicated a love of art in its many forms, as a senior school visual arts teacher.
