Compliments & Appreciations

All I can say is "wow!" You have taken yet another great leap in your storytelling skills! Saying that you are an artist is too easy. I'm priviledged to be able to share the times and places and thoughts and spaces that you present to us. Like a good ritual, your stories leave us with a foot in both worlds. Audience member "A Dames Destiny"


What a great evening of storytelling. Thanks for the beautiful told tales and a great weaving together of your stories and styles. Brilliant

Every performance has demonstrated greater creativity and new flights of imaginative thinking. Frankly I hadn't thought much about storytelling as a performance art form until I had the opportunity to see you,, Sarah and Anne perform as Storytellers Three in your Halloween shows. I am a REAL fan now! Audience member , Storytellers Three  "Halloween for Grownups"  2009 -  2013


Ms. Penfound is a seasoned storyteller and her presentations were a hugh success. She brought multiple stories to life in an educational, interactive and fun-filled afternoon. Teacher, West Tualatin,  2014

I just wanted to tell you how very much I enjoyed your performance! I found your story engaging, funny and a little poignant, with just the right amount of "sauce". Your presentation was unassuming, fluent and sparkly. Just great good fun! So glad we had to opportunity to come down to the Clinton to see you
