Talented artist Penny Howe, who attends Unisson's Paper Arts Studio in Pymble has created a series of large paper artworks which will be featured in the 'Metamorphosis' exhibition held by North Sydney Council's community centre, Primrose Paper Inc.
Earlier this year, Penny created a series of paper artworks for a project themed 'Native Flowers', which is where Penny's 'Banksia' themed artwork originated and which now features in the Metamorphosis exhibition.
Since completing her series of 'Banksia' themed paper artworks, NSW not-for-profit provider of community housing, Link Housing, commissioned Penny to create an artwork to feature in one of their meeting rooms which are named after native flowers.
"Penny enjoys working in the medium of handmade paper and is interested in experimenting with various techniques, from 3-D to large decorative 2-D pieces such as her recent 'Banksia' series, says Arts Facilitator, Juliette Rubensohn. "Penny has a considered and confident approach to her art, whether drawing, painting or using handmade paper as the medium. Her works have a unique character and often playful creative energy".
