Hi I am Verity Slaughter-Penney, I have worked education for 27 years as a teacher and a Head teacher, I am now a freelance artist, illustrator and author.
My Main Media are Fine Chalk Pastels, Acrylics and Glass Painting.
I will attempt almost anything that anyone requests, though I do have to say that, not every idea will suit my particular style.
I work in four main areas, see the sample pictures featured below for more information.
I fell into pet portraiture when a friend saw my work and asked me to do a portrait of her dog.
You can read more about this service on our services page.
I love to study birds in
you can see from my gallery,
that I also like to try my
hand at some unusual critters.
If it catches my eye,
I'll have a try!!
Published as an illustrator for the first time this year. I have been proud to be included in illustrating this lovely range of books.
My acrylic canvases are always unique. I like to look for alternative perspectives to create unusual pieces.
