Jessica Marie Penney- Artist
My work teeters between abstract and represen-tational art. My paintings are, at times, highly expressive, and either represent a feeling, or document a moment that I have a personal connection with. I am simply driven by the process of creating, and painting has a beautiful way of documenting my journey in a lasting way.
