This painting was inspired by a family photograph. Back in the 1960's most business's in the UK closed on Wednesday afternoons. This snap was taken on one such occasion. The girl in the painting is my mum aged around 16 years old. She had just begun her apprenticeship as a hair dresser. The painting is framed which adds 1.5 inches to the dimensions.

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.
