Meet your tutor: Penny Hunt

Penny’s studio gives windswept views to inspire. She is drawn to water, painting directly by the side of waterfalls or on the shoreline seaweed. Sand and spray are windblown into the work creating texture and atmosphere. Back in the studio these are worked into printing plates from memories and sketches, never photographs, which remove the immediacy of the feel of the place. Her Fine Art degree, MA and many years teaching (currently in the Print room at the Brewery Arts Centre) helped develop her paintings and printmaking, each material feeds back into the other, the layering, overprinting and intaglio techniques are present in all.
