As a third culture kid, Penelope spent her childhood traveling between Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, USA, and Jamaica; experiencing and adopting the costumes of each Latin American - Caribbean country. She obtained her high school diploma in Jamaica and moved to New York to pursue her passion for art, design, and fashion.
Penelope was involved in major fashion projects such as the development of CR Fashion Book, at the early age of twenty. Her role there was to support and assist the art director and graphic designer of V Magazine. She also worked closely with fashion designer Georgine Ratelband in the launch of her first collection during NYFW/AW12.
She graduated from Parsons with a BBA in Strategic Design & Management in 2014, and moved to Berlin to begin her professional career as a content creator, model, and project manager. Her clients include Monki, Johnnie Walker, John Freida, Instagram, and Premium Group Digital (to name a few).
Apart from developing beautiful marketing material for clients, Penelope enjoys creating thought-provoking visual art. She enjoys playing with digital medium by integrating illustration, graphic design, and photography to her work. Her current project, titled High Fashion, is a cheeky photo collection fusing cannabis culture with luxury designer labels.
