About Briony

no background logo.png

Briony is based in Surrey, UK and works out of her home studio. As a professional artist Bri has sold work across the globe, and exhibited her work across the U.K. Her focus was street art, and her main subject was trainers. A C.V of her exhibitions and shows can be found below. Using the handle ‘Mozart Circus’, Bri started with the UK's most profound sneaker show in 2013 – Crepe City, Bri then continued to exhibit her work throughout the UK until 2019. Since changing her direction from trainers to tutoring, her portfolio has expanded, and her expertise has led into a more traditional approach.

Briony has been tutoring both beginners and more advance students since 2014. She has professional experience in most mediums and can provide tuition for pencil, oil/soft pastel, watercolour paint and pencils, and acrylic paint. Briony strongly believes anyone can be taught to draw and paint despite what your previous experience is. Like any other subject drawing & painting can be approached in step-by-step instructions, and the more often you create the more confident you will become.


Below you can see Briony's portfolio of workshop-based artworks in pencil, pastel, watercolour, and acrylic.

DRAWING

From graphite to charcoal, from portraits to landscapes. A medium that tests observation with not much room for error.
The best starting point for any beginner, all pieces shown are curriculum work taught to students.

PASTEL

Best choice for an introduction of colour before you use a brush. Colouring pencils can be a little more restrictive than pastels. Pastels will cover larger areas more easily, and depending on what pastels you choose will blend very well.
Briony's preference would be oil pastels due to their paint like texture but most pastel artist would opt for soft pastels which can be rubbed out much easier, and require less elbow grease when blending.
Most of the pieces shown are curriculum-based works taught to students.

WATERCOLOUR

When using watercolour paints there are a few rules which will make the process much easier to learn. In particular the materials you use do have an effect on the outcome. The paper you use is particularly important. Once you have your surface prepared watercolour can be very exciting due to its fluidity. Working light to dark can be one of the easiest rules of thumb for beginners to remember due to watercolour paint being transparent.
Below are examples of tutored pieces - A variety of techniques including wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry.

ACRYLIC

Acrylic is one of the most versatile mediums, and one of the most forgiving. Unlike watercolour, acrylic can be less daunting in terms of rectifying work. It is a great place to start if you want to get stuck in and have some fun. 
Below are many examples of finished pieces for the curriculum classes.
