​"What are we looking at?
​An alien who came to meet us from far away or a medieval warrior dressed up with his bright armour?
​What are we looking at?
​A woman from the future or a statue from an old time?
​The portrayed character is freed from its outer shell and shares with the curious and fascinated observer all the inner strength he has, flying together towards what could be a daydream."
"​Penelope's work is filled with energy that comes from within.  You feel a spirit has descended and has controlled her hand and thought.  Her work possesses significance through the use of colour, form and movement.  Each piece stands on its' own and has a presence of importance."

"Affirmation of Penelope’s talent, commitment and capacity is certainly well deserved. Her visionary works can project creativity beyond the ordinary, in the world of dream and fantasy."
​Beppe Palomba
​Presidente Accademia della Bussola
“Penelope is an intellectual contemplative who observes - with noble calmness - the furious overlap of trends and time. In securing the validity of an original visual language, her art is recognizable and stylistically consistent."
Tatiana Carapostol ​Artistic Director at StudioArTe
