Penny Kitchen



I was born in the year of the Boar, in Picton, before it was fashionable to be there. My mother was a concert pianist and my Father owned his own company. I studied music as a child, along with dance, and art. It was a natural progression later to combine these acquired abilities and study animation.
I was accepted at Sheridan College at the age of 17. Before I graduated, I was hired by Hanna Barbara to work on the Scooby Doo series. I loitered around Toronto for a while, working on some commercials, not only in animation, but also in live action. It was at this time that I met my husband-to-be and we started performing music together.
Our part-time careers seemed to take over our lives for about ten years during which time we moved to Prince Edward County. After our move, we taught traditional martial arts during the evening, played in our band on weekends, and generally freelanced during the day. I am now a second degree Black Belt, and we are still teaching and occasionally performing. We’ve been involved in numerous stage productions in the County area.
I decided to get into feature animation. After updating my portfolios I searched for and eventually landed a job with Creative Capers. I worked on numerous CD Disney ROM’s such as Hercules, Little Mermaid, Lion King and a few pilots. The studio then landed a contract with Warner Bros’ Quest for Camelot, then Fox for Bartok (a spin off of Disney’s Anastasia), and after that it was again Fox, working on Titans AE. The most recent project was again with Warner Brothers. It was Osmosis Jones with Bill Murray, released in August 2001. The business has slowed down somewhat recently, so I decided to study Multi Media.
I’m now the part time Church Administrator at the Picton United Church (the one with the leaning clock tower). I also have my art studio located at the church. I’m currently kept busy with private commissions and the odd vocal job/show; often with my husband John and sometimes with our daughter, Roanna.
