Penelope Sai is an emerging Australian artist currently residing in the Blue Mountains. She works in mixed media and her paintings, with their unexpected and lush palette, reflect her love of the Australian landscape’s changing moods in light and colour.
Penelope’s background is in music and she has enjoyed an International career in the jazz world with 5 album releases to date. As a younger woman, she travelled the globe working for more than a decade as an international, high fashion model.
On canvas, there is vibrancy and movement in Penelope’s work which, like jazz, comes from her spontaneity, her love of improvisation and her deep personal connections to people and places around her. We see the mountains and the Australian landscape yet there are influences from her other lives lived in Paris, Casablanca, London and Munich. Home is found in these paintings but so too the influence of colour and energy from her many recent travels to Rajasthan, Louisiana, Spain and other fascinating and mystical locations.
