Penny’s artworks focus on Identity and many of them on her identity based on the Mana Wahine from her family and their stories. A red thread runs through all her paintings which is I ngā wā o mua (the Māori world view to take the past with us into the future for guidance).
This exhibition; Mana Muse is a series of portraits of contemporary, authentic, inspiring Wahine; leaders in their chosen professions, who advocate and stand up for women's rights today particularly within their fields, which include the arts, poetry, writing, teaching, politics and all are mothers. The Wahine Penny is painting include Anika-Moa, Sia Figiel, Marama Davidson MP and Dr. Selina Tusitala Marsh, who are collaborating with her on how they want to be portrayed.
