THE PORTRAIT MACHINE has been created by Artist/Illustrator Amy Pennington, inspired by her love of drawing, performance and fun. Standing inside the machine Amy interacts with the audience as people queue, wait and smile – she draws their portrait. Audience members receive a receipt while Amy makes lo-fi SFX and their portrait is delivered out the side of The portrait machine (via Amy's hand). People are offered the opportunity to be drawn singularly, in couples or as a group.
