Jackie Penny


Jackie Penny went to Worcester State University, B.A. and Clark University, M.A., lives and works in Worcester, Massachusetts. Shortly after her children were born in 2010, she wanted to write them a book about the special places in the city. When they were infants, she would take them with her, sit and sketch while they napped; the finished work was completed at home. The resulting artwork was compiled and used in a book entitled Goodnight Worcester; it was their first birthday present. Jackie revisited the text again in 2015 Goodnight Worcester, Revisited and the artwork appeared in an ArtsWorcester exhibition at the Hanover Theater. She has exhibited pieces at ArtsWorcester, the Prints and the Potter Gallery, the Mary Cosgrove Dolphin Gallery at Worcester State, Worcester Windows and the Davis Art Gallery. She works in the graphic arts department at the American Antiquarian Society.
