'Penny is an excellent editorial make up artist from the school off less is more. She has over 20 years experience, it shows in her work and her work ethic. She’s take me or leave me, quick, accurate and sharp. She’s also equally happy with boys or girls and is capable of some really stunning beauty make up, if she can twist my arm to shoot some. Penny probably saves me 2 days a shoot and she’s a dab hand with hair too, if needs be.' ~ Karl Baxter, Photographer

From our first meeting right through to my wedding day, she put me at ease and totally understood what I wanted, but more importantly what would work for my photographs.

“I worked with Penny for the first time yesterday and WOW, what a great make-up artist. She arrived on location at 7.30am and we gave her less than 90 minutes to transform 12 actors into Zombies. Her make-up was superb, all the performers looked very much like the un-dead and their hair was amazing! Penny was an absolute pleasure to work with, personable, charming and funny. And of course the results were superb. I highly recommend Penny.” ~ Neil Armstrong, Shepperton Studios

''I worked with the infamous Penny on a shoot with Karl Baxter recently. I already knew of Penny and her amazing MUA work from the many photographers she's worked with, models who've spoke highly of her and the long list of images that display her awesome skills. I'm always quite nervous about working with MUAs, but with Penny I was instantly comfortable and at ease. I loved the looks that she gave me and didn't want to take the make-up off afterwards! The images from the shoot wouldn't have been possible without Penny's complete understanding of what Karl had asked of her, and how easily she created it. Her professionalism, talent and lovely personality are what make her so respected by everyone and I loved meeting/working with her. I really hope we get the chance to work together again. :-) Thanks Penny!'' ~ Dee Elegia, Model
