Penny Driscoll

 

Penny Driscoll is a local artist. Since training and working in the landscape design profession she has more recently swopped her drawing board for an easel. She attended local art courses in order to learn techniques in different mediums but has now settled to working in oil, charcoal and chalk pastel. This has encouraged a looser style. She usually tries to simplify a painting rather than over complicate it. She has won awards in many local and regional competitions including first prize at the 2019 New Forest Open Art competition sponsored by Exxon Mobil. Her successes have given her the confidence to sell her work on a regular basis.

Penny’s style is evolving continually as she strives to improve her work. She is fascinated by the ever changing lights that fall on the New Forest landscape and the animals that graze it. She is particularly drawn to the mosaic of landscape, it’s vegetation and the often beautiful lines and shades of the animals that have the New Forest as their home. 
Growing up and living in this National Park for many years has meant Penny has a good understanding of the way the commoners work, how the animals survive in it and how they shape this landscape they live in.


Penny says, “Almost every time I step out in the New Forest I see sights of the woodlands, waterways, lawns and expansive moorlands and animals that take my eye. I think about them and try to express through my paintings what I love about them all and how they coexist, shape and rely upon each other in this special environment.”
