Artist Statement

The Central California coastline is that bit of Nirvana where nature poured out the best of her blessings - into glassy lagoons, along traces of soft beaches, onto velvety gold hillsides, into aromatic pine forests. These are the natural treasures that inspire Ed Penniman to immerse himself in a scene, find its essential spirit, and offer his idealized interpretation to the world. Awarded a Gold Medal from the American Institute of Graphic Arts, Penniman collaborates with other artisans producing commissioned pottery, jewelry design, and other heirlooms. Penniman was voted Best Artist in the Good Times Best of Santa Cruz County for 2020.
