Penelope's paintings and photography are a reflection of her passion for food, wine and joie de vivre. They are
contemporary in style with an emphasis on color, mood and light. A gourmet at heart, Penelope is immersed in
Wine Country culture and influenced by her experience working in the fine dining restaurant industry. Penelope's
culinary compositions offer unique insight into the world of food and wine.
Her inspiration begins at restaurants, wine bars, tasting rooms, wine cellars and around dinner tables with wine, food and friends. Through the use of rich color, dynamic perspective, intimate atmosphere and epicurean subject matter, Penelope's work conveys the essence of a bon vivant lifestyle.
Penelope earned her BFA in Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. Penelope regularly
exhibits her work at wineries throughout Sonoma and Napa Valley. She resides in Napa Valley where her love and
growing knowledge of wine continues to be a source of inspiration in her work.
