Penny Smyth Fedorchak

Penny's passion has always been to be an artist; only in recent years has been she able to follow her hearts desire to paint in watercolor. As a member of Jeanne Shanahan’s Plein Air Group, she has found her niche. Penny loves the colors of the outdoors and strives to capture their beauty and strength; her florals show her bold use of color. The grandeur of Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada mountains stimulate her creativity.

Primarily self taught, her art education has consisted of taking workshops and studying with local teachers. Among nationally known artists with whom Penny has studied are: Robert Willis, Charles Reid, Joan McKasson, Cheng Khee-Chee, Fealing Lin, Tom Fong, John Salminen, Mark Mehaffey Gerald Brommer, Carl Dalio, Frank Webb, Frank Francese, Dan Burt, and Don Andrews.

Her paintings have won numerous awards, including:
  • “Sunflowers” 1st place, Fallbrook Art Association 2008.
  • "Autumn in Yosemite,” 2nd place La Jolla Art Association Plein air show, 2007; also, the Dorothy Stillens Plein Air award, FAA 2007.
  • ”Journeys End”, 1st place, FAA 2006.

“I love to paint and hope the viewer will enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed creating it.”
