About Penelope Merrell

I now live in Los Angeles -- married for more than 45 years, 2 adult sons, a son-in-law, and daughter-in-law. I became interested in graphic novels after reading several. I took four classes at Santa Monica College on the concept and techniques for graphic novels and sequential art.

Originally from a Montana farm, I am one of nine children. I began drawing before age 4. Mom would cut open used envelopes for me to draw on. Dad gave me the big, soft-lead, square carpenter's pencils to use. When in high school, I got an oil painting set for Christmas and fell in love with color. Selling my two cows (4-H projects) put me through my first year of university.

I graduated Seattle University, Fine Art degree. Besides working at a print shop, department store displays, small graphic art projects, drawing cow spots for registration forms, I had a small business of house design and architectural drafting for building contractors for 25 years. I also painted (acrylic on canvas) exhibiting in art shows and galleries for 20 years in Olympia Washington and Palm Springs..

I began writing seriously several years ago. Our writing group still meets weekly. I wrote & illustrated my first graphic art story in 2011. My first three stories were relatively short. All were good preparation for a graphic novel. December 2013, I uploaded my first graphic novel.
