Hi, I'm Penn. If you know me through social media, you may know me as Mixy.

I am a mixed media & textile artist, a thing maker.

From the youngest age I've known this, although I took a diversion into 'proper grown up jobs' for a while on the way.

I'm happiest when I'm playing with colors and patterns, making messy paint projects. These are the times I can connect back to myself, let go of the chaos of the outside world, and reset my world.

I believe we all need to find a way to do this. I love to share my process and help others find their way to escape into creativity.

I'm always learning, always looking, making connections and musing on meanings.

I almost always have paint on my hands and quite often my clothes too.

I love to share my fascinations of the moment, my wonderments, my thinkings. You can read about these in my blog, but for a much more muchier source of my thoughts and offerings to the world, be the first to know with monthly updates delivered right to your inbox.

Penn is brilliant at creating an environment of fun, introspection and gentle creativity. I had a fabulous time making visual poetry and seeing how it reflected my life so simply.
