Christine de Brenni @ Atelier de Brienne
Christine is a visual artist, community artist and art therapist.
Currently she works predominantly in mosaic art. Christine hopes to lift the profile of mosaic art and showcase its versatility - from a simple decorative craft to a fine art form.
Christine makes a range of unique mosaic jewellery, "Il Talismano", pieces of which are available for sale at Atelier de Brienne, by appointment.
From the beginning of April, Christine will open her studio on Saturdays from 10am - 4pm for bARTer ART sessions. If you are interested in learning about mosaic art, or you have a project with which you would like some help, or you simply want to explore your creativity, then contact Christine.
Christine has studied with Italian mosaic maestro, Giulio Menossi and she continues to aspire to the beauty and quality of work produced by maestro Menossi, especially portraiture. Examples of her work are on display in the atelier.
Christine is in the process of organising a series of Mosaic Master Classes by Giulio Menossi in September/ October 2016. These will be intensive (80 hours), small group workshops in which participants will learn traditional techniques for landscapes and portraiture as well as contemporary mosaic forms. Details are yet to be finalised, but you can register your interest NOW to be included on the "Menossi I mosaici Downunder" mailing list.
