Penny Gabor Art

Penny Gabor is a working artist currently finding her inspiration near the beautiful shores of Great Lakes Superior and Huron after many years on the Canadian Prairies.  She is the Mom of a large family that likes to hike and explore the outdoors, and she is often the one they are all waiting for as she takes in the feeling and the beauty of the land and sky, and everything in between.  


“My landscapes are almost always painted from a place in my mind rather that an actual destination.  Although they are inspired by real places, I am rarely seeking to recreate the exact original. I enjoy ‘playing’ with the inks and paint, and letting them do some of the work, thus creating a feeling rather than an exact replica.”


Alcohol ink, which is recognized by its intense, highly saturated and yet translucent colours is a stunning and challenging medium that keeps her captivated day after day.  

“Alcohol ink has captured my attention and respect.  I love the vibrant colour, and their reactive, less controllable nature give the paintings the organic feel that I love.  Painting and creating has always energized me and nature feeds my soul.  I believe that beauty is nourishing for all of us.  This is why I paint, and what I hope to pass on in my paintings - life, hope, beauty and nourishment.”


“Alcohol inks are a wonderful metaphor for life - A reminder to continually embrace the unexpected, and to persevere until something of beauty emerges!”
