Penny Lim, Vancouver-born artist, excited to enter school just like her big brothers!  A gifted Grade I teacher encouraged her to strive, complimented Penny's printing and drawing.  Countless positive influences continued.  Extraordinary music teacher as Grade IV homeroom, placed in a split Grade V/VI classroom thereby listening in on the older students' lessons.  Drawing enhanced life.

During a lengthy European working holiday, Penny attended Bobo Boden's art class in Germany and painted wall murals of a pre-school which stimulated interest again in the arts.  Home in Canada, Penny studied at Capilano College, the Emily Carr followed by a post-grad year in Hangzhou, China. 

Both printmaking and sculpture appealed to Penny, however, the electric tools left some discomfort so Penny majored in Printmaking.  Visiting Europe to embark on a summer job brought Penny face-to-face with Toulouse-Lautrec's stone lithograph of Mme. Lender!  Stone lithography became her specialty major.

Passions include:  drawing, nature, travel, birding -- waterfowl, history and learning.  Likes words, too.

Bring your imagination to draw a self-portrait mask, timed:  5 minutes for adults / 10 minutes for kids.
