Penny Elder - Painting/Printmaking
Tel: 020 8883 3399
About me: I have lived in Muswell Hill for forty six years with my husband, a GP, and our four children, and have worked as a psychoanalytical psychotherapist seeing individual patients as well as supervising therapists, running supervision groups for Highgate Counselling Centre, and running courses for bereavement counsellors. I have also had a practice seeing couples for therapy. I have painted all my life and since 2004 have had a studio at the Chocolate Factory, Wood Green, where I paint, and also screenprint and monoprint.
About my work: My oil paintings are usually semi-abstract remembered landscapes and my screenprints and monoprints are often abstract or figurative. I have been focusing more recently on large abstract paintings and have a particular love of colour. I have had solo exhibitions at the London Centre for Psychotherapy, the Tavistock Centre, Westminster Pastoral Therapy Centre, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Gallery, Karamel Arts Venue and recently at The British Psychotherapy Foundation, and have an Open Studio Weekend annually at The Chocolate Factory, N22, where I have my studio.
