The Artist Penelope Casey
Penelope Casey is a Papua New Guinea (PNG) born artist who has called Fiji home for the last twenty years. Drawing on her childhood influences from the vibrancy of the culturally diverse Pacific islands, she has established herself as an award-winning artist with an internationally recognized portfolio spanning two decades.
As an artist, Penelope is at the forefront of emerging pacific themes and is continually learning new skills and techniques. She believes that art develops as a progression; an evolution similar to the journey of life. Art is autobiographical, which means aspects that have visually influenced Penelope's life; the faces and landscapes that surrounded her during her lifetime have shaped her vision and expertise as an artist and creator.
