Penelope Long (Class of 1988)
Penelope Long is a former student of Tintern who graduated in 1988. After completing a Fine arts degree at RMIT she embarked upon a career as a professional artist working in oils on canvas. She went on to have many solo exhibitions in established commercial galleries in Sydney, Melbourne and Hong Kong. During this period Tintern acquired two of her artworks for their collection. She has also been a finalist in numerous art prizes, including the Salon de Refuses and the Portia Geach portrait prize.
Penelope is now returning to painting after having had an extended break to raise her two children. This time she is choosing to focus on portraiture, in particular portraits of children having of course being inspired by her own.
Portraits in oils on canvas are priced at $250 for a 25cm x 22cm painting and the price will increase in relation to size.
