About | Penelope Hunter
Penelope Hunter is based in
Johannesburg, South Africa.
She began exhibiting her work 
in various Johannesburg art 
galleries in 2000.

Her work initially consisted of 

decorative figure studies and 

moved on to experimentation 

with a range of mediums and 

techniques.​Subject matter includes humans,animals and


Her work has an organic feel, 

often with impasto and 

elements of abstraction.

Penelope's work may be

found in local art galleries and

international buyers continue to

request her work.

I create work based on places, creatures  and interesting people. 

Painting has been a staple diet, nurturing my connection with the world- a tangible expression of appreciation through creating. 

I enjoy being expansive with subjects and experimentation, not limiting my work to the confines a very specific style.

I love collaborating to create specific pieces, feel free to contact me for commissioned artwork.
