Penelope Deyhle El-Dalati


"Every day I wake up and feel so excited to be able to create; after studying in both London (Central Saint Martins 1997-1999) and New York (School of Visual Arts 1999-2003) , I now feel comfortably rooted in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Here, I have the ability to raise my daughters and have space to have a studio in my residence. It is the most rewarding feeling to know I can be a present parent while also a consistent artist, always painting.


My commitment to painting goldfish for over 20 years has dubbed me as "The Original Goldfish Artist of the Jersey Shore", and during the last couple of years I have veered in a few directions only to come full circle to start a brilliant new goldfish collection. My works are about exploring all water themed ideas and my wave paintings have emerged during the summer of 2023" 

Summer 2023 Collection; some paintings available in person at Main Street Gallery in Manasquan, NJ and also a small collection of the Goldfish Collection.
