Hello, I’m Pen.

I live and work in the small island of Ireland with my husband, Merve. Our family is grown and flown – but, gladly, not too far away. I’m a compulsive sketcher and drawing has always seemed as natural as breathing to me. The created world and the mark we make on it draws me in to looking and exploring. My work is about celebrating the extraordinary in the ordinary with colour, light and joy. I want my art to invite the viewer into a story, connecting the moment before me with memories of times spent together and our longing for community.
