Britney Penouilh is a mixed media artist with a science background based in New Orleans, LA. Influenced by theoretical physics, Penouilh’s work is a curiosity of the universe, a sense of discovery, and the human experience within the universe, multi-verse, quantum reality and spiritual reality.
With extensive training in drawing – line, shadow, texture, dimension, perspective, and proportion, Penouilh spent many years producing portraits, still life, landscape, and architectural drawings from direct observation.
At the University of New Orleans, Penouilh earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts. "I studied Geology in addition to Fine Art. For a year, I worked in a geology lab analyzing ore samples from the world’s largest copper and gold mine. The ultimate human history begins with the Earth and I wanted to understand the systems, land and geology that immediate influences cultures. Philosophy, Theology and Science became subject matter to my work as I incorporated drawing, painting, collage and sculpture in mixed media pieces."
Penouilh has worked with renowned hyperrealist sculptor Carole Feuerman in New York, NY and completed artist residencies in Lake Clark, AK and Hot Springs, NC
