About The Artwork

"we were better off when we were little children when our faith came as easy as dreaming if we dreamed we could fly hope was shining in our eyes we were better off when we were little children..." - Elenowen "We Were Better Off" :: DETAILS :: - The penguin characters are hand-drawn on watercolor paper using ink and watercolor, and then glued onto the acrylic painted surface. - The entire painting surface is then protected with 2 coats of water resistant varnish. - All original artworks are hand-signed on the front and back by myself, and comes with a certificate of authenticity that is also hand-signed. :: SHIPPING INFORMATION :: - Paintings are packaged in a clear plastic wrap, followed by bubble wrap, and then brown packaging paper. - For a painting of this size, the canvas will be rolled up and sent in a mailing tube. This significantly reduces shipping costs, and decreases the chances of the artwork getting damaged while in transit. When you receive it, you may then bring the canvas to a framer to get it stretched onto canvas bars, and/or framed as you see fit. :: PLEASE NOTE :: - Each painting is described, photographed and depicted as accurately as possible. However, due to variations in individual PC monitor hues, it’s impossible for all pieces to look the same on every computer monitor. - Should you require more photos of the artwork, get in touch with me and I’ll be happy to send you some. :: COMMISSIONS :: - Like what you see but it’s not exactly what you want? - Chat with me at to create something especially just for you or your loved ones. - View more of my commissioned works at :: FOLLOW ME FOR LATEST UPDATES :: Instagram & Twitter: @penguingirl_art Facebook: / Website: Copyright © 2017 MaryAnn Loo, PenguinGirl Art.

Whimsical art with cute characters searching for our place in the world. I’m on a quest to discover who I truly am, and seeking answers to what life is really all about. Art is a significant part of this personal journey, and also how I share my insights and experiences with seekers like myself. In our daily struggles, it’s easy to lose sight of who we are, and what truly matters to us. Through characters, symbols, and colourful whimsical scenes in my paintings and illustrations, I remind and inspire others (and myself) to keep seeking our truth and become the best possible version of ourselves.
