Craig Penny

Watercolour & Acrylic. Craig showed an interest in art and drawing at a very young age. His love of art saw him enrol in the art course at Hamilton Technical School. Craig studied art at Ballarat University, where painting and graphic design attracted most of his attention. Craig pursued a successful career as an illustrator in the advertising industry and became a member of the Illustrators Association of Australia. Throughout this time, he never lost his love of using traditional methods and subsequently specialized in watercolour and acrylic painting. This has led to an extremely successful solo career. In 2001, Craig had his first major solo exhibition at Manyung Gallery in Mt Eliza, Victoria. In 2007, his work was accepted by Gallery Diamante in Carmel California. Craig has lead painting and sketching trips to Cambodia, Vietnam, Greek Islands, France and Japan.
