Meet the Makers
Creative Effects by Penny
5589 Ardoch Road, Ardoch
I have been crafting for many years. I moved to North Frontenac in 2014. At that time I created my first painting on a simple piece of wood. While driving home one evening, the brilliant sunset on Pine Lake caught my eye. I actually surprised myself how that initial painting captured what I had seen - and yes I have kept that painting to this day.
Since that time, creating has become my passion.
My canvas can be a variety of things, for example by taking a blank piece of canvas and bringing it to life by adding paint, or taking a piece of wood, cutting it, shaping it, sanding it and then adding paint or stain until something unique appears. My canvas can also be a blank piece of clothing such as a t-shirt by transforming that garment through a bleaching process to express a favourite saying, image or place. As well, I do etching designs on glass.
I also enjoy bringing life back to many older unused items such as a long forgotten canoe paddle, old windows and other unique items.
I welcome and specialize in custom orders. I am always open to new ideas. I love to challenge myself expanding my creativity. Some of my work can be seen on my facebook page Creative Effects by Penny.
I look forward to meeting everyone.
