Penny Evans is a visual artist based in Lismore, NSW.
She creates contemporary ceramics and mixed media art. Each work created by Penny is unique and an evolution in her artistic practice.
Design work on the ceramics reference Penny’s Kamilaroi (Gamilaraay) cultural heritage in combination with her unique and evolving style. The technique of sgraffito is a strong feature of the ware and links to Kamilaroi traditions of carving into trees, weapons, utensils as well as ground carving for ceremonial purposes, communications and storytelling.
Penny’s 2D mixed media works examine more recent histories as opposed to narratives connecting culture to country.
