Greetje Penning

born'73, Hindeloopen; painter, textile artist, poet, writer


My artwork is a slow unfolding story: I do my stitching, weaving, spinning and felting by hand, I dye my wool and fabrics with local plants and I paint with handmade pigments more and more often.


These muted plant-based colours reflect the landscapes they come from and the landscape of my heart.They have a complexity that is firmly rooted in the places I love most: the rugged, windswept parts of Scotland, England, Denmark and my homeland Frisia.
