“Louise's inspiration comes exclusively from the natural world, and most enjoy capturing animal expression and behaviour.”
Louise is originally from Gloucestershire, in the UK, but now lives in Helsinki Finland with her Finnish husband. However, she sells paintings worldwide, and regularly take paintings to England for exhibition.
She takes commission work for both domestic animals, and wildlife. For equestrian and pet portraits, she encourages clients to provide reference photographs which provide clarity, and show the true character of their animal. Something only the owner perhaps would recognise. This leads to a more pleasing, and special portrait.
