Penny Howard's practice is often concerned with the meeting of cultures and some of the shared superstitions and religious overlaps between Maori, Samoan, Irish, Scottish, & English cultures.

The works produced are an expression of the artist finding and exploring her own cultural identity. 'For me, it has been the mythology, religions, and bird lore. The birds have become significant as has the ocean'.

The works produced both lyrically and visually are an expression of the artist's narratives of finding one's cultural identity. An exchange of dialogue takes place between Penny's sculptured wood silhouettes as they explore memories of whanau and aiga; whakapapa and gafa, against the backdrop of colonisation and the Pacific Diasporas.

Penny Howard graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 1995, she has work in the permanent collections of the Wallace Arts Trust, Waitakere City Council, Foundation North, Auckland Events Centre and Auckland University- installed in the Business School, Dept Critical Studies in Education, at the Auckland Family Court and in other private collections in China, UK and Australia.
