‘Wrest’ 40 x 40cm oil on canvas

Entranced by the cycle of growth and decay, Louisa captures the details on beautiful smooth Strathmore bristol board using ultra sharp pencils. It’s quiet in the studio, distanced from the world as she looks ever closer at plants, insects and birds. Texture, shadows, silhouettes and movement created with marks and tone, it’s rarely about the colour.

Louisa is a member of the Free Painters and Sculptors and the Society of Graphic Fine Art and a fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists. Her prizewinning drawings are held in private collections internationally.

She also has links to the Royal West of England Academy, Sevenoaks Visual Arts Forum, the Cranbrook Art Show, Pure Arts Group and Emerge.
