about

Working across a wide variety of mediums, from ceramics to print to simple graphite on paper, Peony prioritises narrative and emotion above all in her work

Her hobbies include long walks on the beach, 
watching reruns of the crystal maze, and
contemplating the void

She is one of It's Nice That graduates of 2016, and one of Broken Frontier's Ones To Watch in 2017
