Statement

Hi

My name is Penny MacLaren and I am an artist living in South Australia. I have a Degree in Fine Art and a Grad,  Dip in Social Science Counselling. I work as a counsellor part time in an art school and work as an artist the rest of the time. With in my counselling, I use Art Therapy and I also use my own artwork to destress from a job that can be stressful at times. It works very well together. I teach a couple of private art classes and enjoy the friendship of these groups greatly.

I use to hang art work in leading galleries in SA but with motherhood and work committments over the years meant that I slided into working by commission. This is now the way I complete most of my work. My work is in private collection all around the world with the most being in England and Australia.

I love people and animals and they have become a comsuming interest. Portraits are my main area and I work in all media. I also complete nudes and landscapes. My work ranges from highly realistic to impressionistic. 

Please enjoy my artwork and if you are interested in commissioning a portrait or looking at my landscapes please visit my web site for examples and for contact details. www.pennymaclaren.com
