Penny Gupton 

       Penny Gupton is a native Californian who was raised in Australia during her early years.  She is part of the Forbes-Robinson family, well known for sports car racing.  After graduation from Glendale High, California, she went on to study art and architecture.

       She continued her art education even after her marriage to Miles Gupton. Together they opened stores in both Lake Arrowhead, California, and Kona, Hawaii. That is where she learned the ins and outs of sales, merchandising and promotion. During those years all Penny’s paintings went to fundraising for charity. After the death of her husband, Penny decided to try making a living as an artist, a decision she has never regretted.   

       Living in Hawaii most of her adult life and where her children grew up, she had the beautiful islands to paint.  She attributes the beauty, color and serene feeling of her artwork to living in some spectacularly beautiful places. Her watercolor, oil, and pen and ink creations all reflect her surroundings. Penny has produced work ranging from murals (a joint project painted with her artist son, Alex Gupton at Kona Community Hospital and commercial art to fine art, commissions and portraits for clients across the United States and around the world. Her work can be found in stores in Hawaii and on the mainland. She was Artist in Residence for the prestigious Kona Village Resort until the tsunami of 2011 temporarily closed the resort.  In 2016 Gupton relocated to another beautiful location Sedona, Arizona where she is now painting the wonderful red rocks of the area.

Portrait and other commissions are welcome.
