Penny Collins spent her formative years in Brimfield, Ohio, a small rural farming community. Exposure to all cycles of life (and death) taught her early on to appreciate the beauty in the entire journey. She learned to see beauty in the macabre and appreciate the abundance of life found even under rocks.

Her art evolved from a need to express emotion, experiences, and map out questionable character reflections in general. Her passion for symbolism and archetypes is mirrored in much of her work. She captures moments of intense transition.

Penny’s illustration and design work has been displayed in the Toledo Museum of Art, garnered numerous awards and recognitions including several international design annuals.

Penny currently resides in Toledo, Ohio and operates Studio 566 in the heart of the city.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:
My favorite subjects are portraits of rather non-traditional “real” people. What some consider “imperfection” is absolutely beautiful to me. I try to allow my pencil to echo the thousands of stories each face, each hand, each expression conveys to me. Every texture, curve, wrinkle, scar is the map of our lives.
