Penny Maday Ciochetti has been an artist all of her life. She is a painter who works in acrylics, water color, and mixed media but also works with metal , glass and encaustic. She paints figures, landscape, florals, architecture, images from her imagination as well as abstract pieces.


She has been a teacher in the Arts for over 30 years, in schools, community settings and in her studio (Island Girl Art Studio), across two Canadian provinces as well as locations in Europe. Penny's life is all about Art and creativity.


" My style marries representational images with strong abstract elements. Color, the play of paint, line , the magic between light and dark are a focus. Themes such as sacredness, loss, hope and transformation inspire me. I use symbols from nature, ancient cultures and my own inner world to tell a story."

Penny's work can be seen in galleries throughout Vancouver Island and the mainland as well as on her website:
