Louise has been painting and drawing for years. Her watercolours are often of still life objects such as shoes or cars but often paints skin tone or in monochrome. Her pencil sketch work, often of animals depicts the life, the cheekiness and character of her subjects. Light is very important and her work will always have lights and shadows.
Her accurate style comes from an engineering background and her paintings often look like photographs. The watercolours are layered and removed as necessary to get the shine and light. The pencil work is looser as the subject is alive and usually kicking or wanting to jump off the page.
She can paint landscapes and seascapes but prefers still life. Children's first shoes, all scuffed and loved are a popular choice. Along wedding shoes portraits with the happy couple's shoes together or a group of family shoes as a portrait together.
Her designs are available as originals, limited edition prints, notepads and bone china mugs. Do pop in!
