"Dream Landscapes"


Penny Stirling has always been a bit of a dreamer. As a child, she dreaded ballet classes and felt she could not draw. Later on, she discovered a passion for making things and for free movement. As a result, colour and movement now permeate her dreams. The paintings are collages of naive, spontaneous drawings put together in layers, to make a dreamscape. Some of them have a narrative element, creating story in the eye of the viewer.
