Louise was brought up in the South West of England, mainly in Bath. Her work is based on landscape - living as a child in such a beautiful city no doubt influenced her subject matter.
She was introduced to printmaking at the age of 16 when she moved to Plymouth college where she began studying etchings in their highly sophisticated Art Department. She applied to St Marti...ns and was immediately accepted onto their Fine Art course, which was her first visit to the Big City where she has stayed ever since. Later, in between having her three daughters, she went to Camberwell and studied for an M.A. in Printmaking. She became a member of the Greenwich Printmakers in 1997 and was one of the founder members of the Southbank Printmakers (both succesful artist run galleries in London).
Her work is inspired by places she visits or those views that surround her each day in Blackheath and Greenwich. She has a strong sense of colour and with her drawn line produces images pulling together an unusual relationship between abstract and the figurative.
She has much of her work displayed in private collections such as St Georges Hospital and Lewisham Town Hall as well as many galleries throughout England.
