Joël Penkman's Profile
I love food, and I love to paint, so combining the two seemed like a good idea. My compositions are simple still-life studies of food. Food means something different to everyone and is a trigger for memories and emotion, and I like that people can bring something of themselves to the artworks. I hope my pictures will make people smile.
My favourite medium is egg tempera. It is very time consuming as I make the gesso to prepare my boards and grind my own paint to mix. But the results are worth it.
I was born and raised in New Zealand. After finishing my degree in Fine Arts I moved to the UK where I currently live.
