Penny & Lucy Lou Art is custom art line that focuses
on cultivating, creating, and telling your story through art.
Penny's background began in the storytelling business: she grew up with a camera in her hands from an early age, learning how to roll film, and adjust the camera manually to capture the story happening in front of her eyes. Her undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Randolph-Macon Woman's College. Her senior thesis consisted of (35) poems in reflection of the natural environment. After graduating, she found herself on the front page of The (Lynchburg) News & Advance (literally) and was offered a copy editing / newspaper design job there several months later.
For 2.5 years, Penny wrote headlines, edited copy and designed newspaper fronts and interior pages for all across Virginia and border cities in North Carolina. While there Penny rediscovered her love for the story and the photos that correlated to tell it. After her stint at the newspaper, she settled back in her hometown of Columbia, SC where Penny & Lucy Lou Art was born from a few conversations with her business partner Pam, and (four-legged companion) Lulie (aka Lucy Lou).
