About the Artist- Penny was born in Highgate, London and signs her paintings with her maiden name P.Allan. She studied law but also life drawing at St Martins school of Art and left the legal profession to paint full time. She was elected to the Chelsea Arts club and established a small gallery from where she sold her own work. In 2010 she married Duncan Caddick and they moved to Bittaford Devon, right on the edge of Dartmoor where Penny finds endless inspiration. She also paints oils in a magic realism genre and is building up a collection for a future exhibition.
"My studio is on the edge of the Moor, near Ivybridge and I have built up a large collection of original landscapes from miniature paintings to paintings of 16" by 20". Some are mounted and framed. I also have previous work in oils in a wide range of magical realist subject matter."
