Penelope Scott-McCaig is a Victoria | Gabriola based artist. She is best known for her Botanical and Landscapes. She works in light washes of acrylic layer upon layer creating ethereal narratives of place and memory. Her work is always tied closely to the land. Her newest solo exhibition Faraway Close features a series of primarily her landscapes that skirt the line between representative and abstract. Her compositions and moods are often poetic and create a delicate dance between the sky, the earth and the ocean.

Penelope earned a BFA in Visual Arts with distinction, from the University of Victoria, British Columbia.Her work can be found in numerous private collections across Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Caribbean.

"My work is inspired by the sublime beauty and exquisite mystery of the natural world. Seeded by memory of place and time, each piece, whether botanical or landscape, becomes a poetic study of emotional experience- steeped in that seductive and dreamlike melancholy that nature so often can evoke." - Penelope Scott-McCaig
