Guest of honour at Feytiat 2022

I am delighted to have been selected as a guest of honour for the 21st International Pastel Festival at Feytiat in the summer of 2022

The Festival International du Pastel is organized in partnership with the Société des Pastellistes de France. It has become one of the most renowned showcases for pastel painting in the world. This success is due to the efforts and commitment of the city of Feytiat and the region.

The attendance of visitors (up to 20,000 people per year) and sales records have made the Feytiat Pastel Festival the privileged meeting place between collectors and professional pastellists, American, Canadian, English, Spanish, Italian, Australian, Japanese, Canadian, Dutch, Russian, Chinese…

  • Hi Penelope,
    I found your wonderful pastel paintings accidentally when I learned of a new Girault set bearing your name! Congratulations on this honor that is so well deserved. My question is, do you plan to offer workshops in 2022 and 2023? I live in New York, and love working in pastels (I am at best an intermediate level painter). I’m not sure how practical this question is, but painting/studying in France in one of your workshops seems a lovely experience. Thank you for your time, and happy painting!

      Hello Anita. Thank you for your interest in my work. I do teach workshops and would love to have you join us. This region of France is very beautiful and well worth a visit. I have paused my teaching activity for six months as I am concentrating on my personal work for the upcoming Pastel Salon in Feytiat. Also we are in the process of moving and sorting out a new studio. By spring of next year I will be putting a new programme of courses on my blog. If you would like to send me an e.mail at, I can be sure you are included in my mailing list. Good luck with all your pastel projects. Penelope
