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.
