Giles Penny: Giles's time is divided between Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking, the physical and mental aspect of creation fascinates him, different techniques and materials never cease to enthral and amaze. He is compelled to make art and fortunately love going to work, where he surrounds himself with the ‘tools of the trade’ and can be immersed in a world of endless possibility. What drives him? The wish to make something better than the day before, ‘better’, having greater truth.
