Penny Sasso ‘My Life on a Plate’ at ME ARTSPACE – 25 May – 5 July 2018
Penny was inspired by her clients in her Interior Design business, along with her true love of colours, textures and mediums, it motivated Penny to expand her knowledge into learning ceramic painting, mosaic art, glass art, and more recently polymer clay, encaustic and resin art.
During the last 17 years of developing her craft she has had many of of her clients commission her to create a “special” piece of art to display in the entry, or similar, of their new homes. Penny finds that by dealing directly with a client, she is able to seek out their inner personality and meld it into an art piece that truly expresses who they are. Alternatively, she has a selection of pieces ready to hang or place in your home. Art, in all its shapes and forms, reflects the true individuality of its owner and this is what Penny tries to emulate.
