About Penny

I was born and raised in sunny California by brave Cambodian refugees. Falling in love with photography was easy.  It happened at age 5 upon receiving the developed film from my first camera (courtesy of Dad).  

Although formally educated at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, I believe my greatest teachers have been Mother Nature, world travel, surfing, music, love and loss (and the beauty in both), and this very mysterious and ever surprising life.  

Over the years I’ve been blessed to live in and enjoy beautiful places around the world from the Mendocino Coast to Los Angeles, New York City and Fiji.

Today, I am living my bi-coastal dream based between California and Kauai where I’m able to wander wild in nature and still access the pulse of city life when I need it.
