Lamorna Penrose grew up in an artists environment in rural Cornwall where from a very early age she had an instinctive need to draw and paint.
In 1993 she spent a year at Falmouth College of Art where she studied on the foundation course and specialised in fashion and textiles, followed by three years studying for her degree in theatre and costume design at Wimbledon School of Art. In that time Lamorna worked with international television and theatre companies designing costumes and sets.
Lamorna returned to Cornwall where she found the landscape and pace of life had such a considerable impact on her work she decided to aim towards devoting all her working energies to painting.
For the past seven years Lamorna took a break from painting to concentrate on her two beautiful daughters, but now they are happily enjoying school life she has picked up her paint bushes again and we are delighted to be one of only a handful of galleries representing her.
