Eve Penz is a native of Louisiana. Growing up on her family's farm, she developed an interest in agriculture and a true connection to the land. She left the south to study painting and graphic design in upstate New York. Her passion for art led her to France where she also discovered a love of food and wine. A self-proclaimed "foodie" Ms. Penz spent most of her career in hospitality but she traded in the bustle of the kitchen for the quiet of her studio. She and her husband Charlie have two daughters and a Boston terrier. They reside in Pennsylvania.
