About "The Matriarch"
The backdrop for this painting is the tall trees of the riverine woodland in South Luangwa National Park. Instead of creating a work based on the stereotyped bull elephant tusker so often seen in wildlife art, I wanted to capture the essence of herd life of the African Elephant. In this painting 'The Matriarch' stands in defensive protection of the herd herd as they head down to the river to drink.
Penny was born in England and her early years were spent growing up in Kenya and later Zambia. Over the years she has developed a passion for the African environment, its wildlife and birds. Game bird art is a speciality of Penny's and she was commissioned by the African Game Bird Research and Development organization to illustrate the acclaimed "Agred's Game Birds of South Africa" (2006) and she was also one of seven artists for the new Roberts 7.
She has participated in numerous exhibitions over the years in Pietermaritzburg, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Gaborone.
