Her works explore memories, stories, and longing of and for whanau, whakapapa and tūrangawaewae, within both her Maori and European ancestry. She questions what we have lost culturally through colonisation and pacific diaspora but also the connections that we can retrace and hold within ourselves to pass on to future generations. Penny graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 1995. She has work in the permanent collections of the Wallace Arts Trust, Foundation North, Auckland Events Centre, the University of Auckland and in public and private collections across New Zealand, Australia, the UK, and China.
