A “maker of stuff,” Certified Zentangle® Teacher and artist Penny Raile is known for her whimsical projects that range from cardboard cuckoo clocks to WhimBots crafted from thrift-store finds. Her downtown Los Angeles loft with its turquoise-stained floor and hand-painted walls reflects an eclectic mix of paintings, sewn dolls and creatures, polymer clay objects, and dioramas.

The bookcases are full of art books and journals she has filled with her own drawings and collages. Penny loves color and things that make people smile. She brings her special brand of creativity to all of her professional pursuits, including her many years in fundraising and development for nonprofit organizations. Her projects and events have delighted countless children for whom art is a rare experience.
