About The Artwork

I work mainly from old photographs - family snaps and Polaroids. I choose images that tell strangely familiar stories to evoke complex emotions and elusive ideas. Nostalgic certainly - a fond longing for something that is missing, as well as bitter-sweet remembering. This reference photo was taken in Paris in the 1950’s… how cool are they!!!

Louise is an oil painter of people, places and people in places. After completing a BA in Illustration at KIAD, she had a successful career in television production. She has now returned to painting full time and works from her home studio in Kent, UK. Her subject matter is suburban, unposed and sometimes nostalgic. Louise’s landscapes are inspired by places local to where she lives, and explore locations which are often overlooked or ignored. Her paintings begin as pen and watercolour sketches, before taking reference photos and heading back to the studio for completion in oil. The figurative work and portraits range from people she knows, photos of strangers and more recently family Polaroids from the 70’s and 80’s. Louise’s style is representational but often uses muted or ‘ever so slightly’ too vivid colour palettes together with a ‘snapshot’ composition. By doing this she intends to elevate the ordinariness of the subject matter and evoke a shared feeling of familiarity.
