Meet the Artist Penelope Cowley

In 1998 I came to Cardiff to study at the Cardiff School of Art and Design achieving a 2:1 in Ba hons in Fine Art. Following on from this I completed the PCGE in FE at University of Wales, Newport 2006. Since then I have been building on my practice creating a career as an professional artist with my main work presently covering themes in physics. I am presently being commissioned to create artworks for science departments in Wales and England the style of which can be considered as 'Artsci'  a form of art that assimilates science data and creativity. I returned to teaching in 2016 as a Vale Tutor to accompany my professional practice in Artsci. Tutoring learners of all ages and abilities is a wonderful way in which I able to impart my knowledge and techniques to bring pleasure and a sense of accomplishment to those who enjoy creating their own unique art. My classes are relaxed friendly environments to be enjoyed by all.
