Born in Barnsley South Yorkshire, Louise discovered her talent for art and love of creation at an early age. Living amongst glorious countryside and with regular visits to the Yorkshire coast, her childhood involved woodland adventures, rock-pooling, discovering caves, and more. The perfect inspiration, when she wasn’t exploring her surroundings, she documented them in sketches and paintings.
After leaving art college Louise began selling her artwork on a stall in her local shopping centre. Audiences regularly gathered to watch her create compositions of pets and wildlife. Art took a back seat after the birth of her daughter in 2001; a full-time mum, Louise wanted to provide a childhood as freeing and idyllic as the one she’d enjoyed.
Return to Art
Louise has returned to her passion in recent years, creating art in her home studio. She has exhibited at various arts and crafts events across the country but now works with one of the finest art publishers in the UK, who represents and distributes her alcohol ink artwork to a number of prestigious galleries.
