ARTIST BIO
PENNY B
Pyrography and Mixed Media Artist
Penny Branton is one of the premier freehand pyrography artists in the southeastern US. Born and raised in the Piedmont area of North Carolina she is now working in Winston Salem, known as the City of the Arts and Innovation. She is a self-taught artist and mother with a unique talent for turning repurposed materials into extraordinary pieces of art.
Having traveled throughout the eastern seaboard (and then some), Penny pulls from her own diverse heritage of Irish, Polish, Italian, and Cherokee traditions as well as combining influences from nature, fractals and geometric patterning, and graffiti art to create works that she hopes delight the viewer and incite meaningful conversations about the work itself.
