Melanie Lynn Penn

Artist
Melanie Lynn Penn is a technical designer living in NYC. She was diagnosed as BRCA1+ six years ago and underwent a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy in July of 2018, at the age of 30. She was looking for a way to use her art to give back to the community of women that helped her find emotional healing through the last year and in doing so her word portrait project began. Using outline style portraits, words and phrases to tell stories of individual women, she hopes to help bring awareness to what women deal with as they face diagnoses, surgeries and other trials of life that would normally be left unspoken.
