Artistic Statement

Louise is an oil painter of people, places and people in places. She works from her home studio in Kent, UK.

Her subject matter is suburban, unposed and often nostalgic.

Louise’s landscapes are inspired by places local to where she lives. But similar could be found in any suburban town. 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.
