Mara Penny had the pleasure of growing up in Lake Tahoe, and she remains a Californian to this day. She loves color, pattern, texture and line. She earned a BFA at California College of the Arts, studying both interior and jewelry design. She is inspired by all things including her relationships as a mother, wife, sister and daughter. Mara particularly loves drawing, painting, sewing and reading (cooking and gardening, not so much!). Her husband is her best friend and Mara tells us she is happy!
