About Penny


Bio

The task of working with words can be faced with fear - or excitement. Yes, it is scary to face a writing assignment. However, with a little bit of planning and courage, words can appear. It is difficult when spelling and grammar are a challenge. I can help. My background includes creating poetry in my teens and newspaper articles as an adult.

The task of working with words can be faced with fear - or excitement. Yes, it is scary to face a writing assignment. However, with a little bit of planning and courage, words can appear. It is difficult when spelling and grammar are a challenge. I can help. My background includes creating poetry in my teens and newspaper articles as an adult. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Pennsylvania, and completed graduate coursework in Communication (Drexel University). I have had some classroom experience as a substitute teacher, and look forward to communicating with you.

Art is a form of communication. Drawing and painting are ways to express your view of the world. I have worked with oils, acrylics, pastels, colored pencil, and watercolor. My art has appeared in several juried shows, has been published in a local directory, and I received a commission to produce illustrations for medical use. Let me help you express your creativity.

Drawing

I have enjoyed creating art for many years, and understand that a good drawing is an essential foundation for any painting. There is drama in a good drawing. Some of my drawings have been displayed in the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. I have to attribute my love of art to my parents, who were both professional artists.

Painting

I have created artworks for many years, and have sold various pieces. At one time, I was a member of the Guild of Nature Artists (an affiliate of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History). My work has been accepted and appeared in several local art shows.

Great Tutor

The tutor was great. She reviewed my paper via online. I could not reach her by phone to let her know that I could not make the appointment. However, she was nice enough to review my paper online and gave good suggestions.
