Pene has spent her life surrounded by all that Art contains and began her "career' at age 2 when she redecorated her parents house with wax crayon.
Her childhood was spent in the Pottery Studio of her mother, Alison Brown where her love of drawing and painting was encouraged, then developed through high school and beyond.
More recently, she has added Woodwork to her creative bow. What she calls "Spoons" range from very traditional stirring spoons, to extra large serving vessels over a metre in length, through to Ladles and scoops and 'Spoonbowls'.
Pene is inspired by colour, texture and form all of which wood provides.
