Penny Vere



About Me

Penny Vere is both an artist and a professional musician, based in Malvern in the county of Worcestershire UK.
It was while living in Glasgow for five years that she was able to develop as a painter, through inspirational teaching at Glasgow School of Art. On her return to Malvern, she continued her studies at Hereford College of Arts.
Her paintings reflect her love of colour and light, as in the varied landscapes which are inspired by her journeys both here and around the Mediterranean, particularly Greece.



Racing off Cowes

 I have spent many holidays sailing with friends round the Greek Islands, this has inspired many of my paintings over the years. This year, with the Corona crisis, there will be no holiday in Greece, so I have taken a “virtual holiday” with my paint brushes and produced two paintings of Greek harbours that I have visited in the past, enjoying the memories as I paint!   The first is Meganissi, an island in the Ionian Sea and the second is in South Corfu.    Feel the sunshine!

These 2 paintings are much closer to home.
