Penny Gabor

“There is an unexplainable draw for me towards the way nature lives within a forceful contrast of gentle, life-giving beauty and raw, wild strength. Whether it is the way that a tree grows out of a rock, or the way wind shapes the weary trees, I am just mesmerized by these natural juxtapositions, and the strength and beauty found in the persistence of nature. It is a constant reminder to me to press on, and never give up; for beauty emerges here. Life seems to come into perspective when among the elements and I feel closer and more connected to my Creator.

Alcohol Ink characterizes this notion beautifully, not only because of its intense, highly saturated and yet translucent colours, but because of its chemistry and uncontrollable nature.
It is a continual reminder to embrace the unexpected and persevere until something of beauty emerges.”

Penny is an artist that thrives in and is inspired by nature and the great outdoors. As avid hikers, Penny, and her family spend much time exploring the rugged beauty of the Canadian Landscape; they currently reside in Sault Ste Marie, ON.
