About Louise’s Work
Louise creates original oil paintings and limited edition giclée prints of her handcrafted designs. These pieces are full of colour, featuring animals in sublime, God-like settings. Her gentle handling of light and colour suggests a delicate relationship between ourselves and nature, creating an emotive and spiritual experience within each piece. Lions, elephants, polar bears, and giraffes are just a few of the animals to grace Louise’s work, all of which are rare and endangered species. The artist’s focus on endangered species manifested into ‘Survival’, a book showcasing 20 endangered animals paintings by Louise. Published in 2018, the proceeds of the book went towards the Tusk charity, and the project is testament to Louise’s commitment to her art and animal welfare.
Louise’s animal portraits are inspired by Salvador Dali the Surrealist movement. The fragmentation of her subjects adds a modern edge to her realistic paintings, as her animals melt away into almost liquid forms. Symbolically, this effect represents the fragility of animal life, particularly the endangered species that frequent Louise’s work. These gravity-defying drips and apparition like glitches equally make for a unique signature feature in the artist’s contemporary style.
Louise’s striking animal portraits make for fantastic statement pieces. Her limited edition framed prints are typically around 70cm wide, whilst her original paintings are often exceed a metre in width. Many collectors seek to match the vibrancy of Louise’s work, and have displayed some of her most colourful pieces to complement a colourful feature wall in their home. Equally, her works with more muted grey and brown tones are complementary to more neutral interiors, and existing collectors have stylishly paired such pieces with sleek, minimal interior designs. Louise’s framed giclée prints additionally look fantastic as part of a trendy modern gallery wall design, and pair excellently with existing contemporary collections.
