Penny Cameron (Cameo Crafts)

Penny Cameron is a Nelson based artist working predominantly in stained glass, but also mosaic, fabric and jewellery making as the mood takes her.

Penny was blessed with being the daughter of a very crafty mother, learning to cross-stitch, embroider, knit, crochet, rug make, paint … you name it from a very early age. The most important legacy was a love of working with her hands and whatever materials were available. She sees the creative potential in all that is around her and is particularly inspired by the beauty and intricacy of nature.

She strives to capture this in glass but always has to acknowledge “God did it better – but I’ll keep trying!”

Penny created the Flapper penguin.
