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.
Recent work concentrates on the detail through Lichen, Floral and Insect drawings alongside some experimentation with Graphite and Silverpoint.
Louisa is a member of The United Society of Artists and The Free Painters and Sculptors, both long established London societies; and exhibits regularly at The Mall Galleries, Bankside and the Menier Gallery in selected London Open Exhibitions.
