Penny heath-eves – Biography

“I try to communicate the spirit of a place in my work. Colour, mood and atmosphere are very important to me.” 

Penny Heath-Eves is a Canadian artist living on the Ottawa River. She grew up in southern Ontario, and spent many years in British Columbia and Alberta, before returning to live in the Ottawa area in 2004. She works primarily in oil, but also in acrylic, watercolour and mixed media. These oil landscapes and still lifes, some 
with figures, all have their origin in the Ottawa Valley, with its flat planes of farmland, forest, rock, the Ottawa
River and Gatineau Hills. Some are Plein air sketches, while others were painted from studies, sketches and memory.
