I am a self-taught artist and started painting in 2017. I love being in nature and spend much of my free time hiking on the Downs or High Weald, usually with a camera in hand, observing wildlife
I began by painting simple landscapes to experiment with colour and quickly moved onto studying and painting the myriad of birds visiting my garden. Some of these are portrayed with a photographer’s depth of field and Bokeh, the description for out-of-focus points of light
All of my paintings are inspired by my love of nature and colour resonance
Many of the paintings on this site are available as Greetings Cards and Giclee prints
~ Greetings Cards are printed locally on FSC approved card to help with the Woodland Trust and come with a Kraft envelope
~ Giclée prints are on Hahnemuhle German Etch paper which has a textured, beautiful finish and rich colours
The paintings have arrived! They have taken my breath away, they are absolutely stunning - in real life the colours are so vibrant - I love them. They are going to give me a lot of joy looking at them. Thank you so much.
It was love at first sight. The painting blows my internal circuits, in a good way. It's hanging up in the softest, indirect light in the house so the birds glow off the wall. I love the detail on their tiny little feet. Love 'em. Thank you.
The print of the Kingfisher is stunning! I want to look at it every day. THANK YOU.
Thank you so much Louise, for your beautiful painting which brightens up our home. It is full of enchantment and reveals the vibrant world of birds, bringing them closer to our own imaginations. The colours and textures you have captured are just magnificent. It’s like having a little piece of magic on the wall.
Your cards arrived yesterday and they look even better in person. They're beautiful...can't wait to send them to people. They were so beautifully wrapped. My mother-in-law loved the print.
I received the photo and have it mounted in my open plan living/kitchen area. It's fantastic, thank you.
The prints arrived yesterday, they were so well packed and are stunning. Just need to decide where to put them now. Thank you.
Thank you so much for the paintings and cards - just beautiful! It is a real treat to imagine them grace my new house. They are rich and abstract yet so concrete and colourful and I love the contours - there's a lot to be looked at many times.
My kingfisher arrived today and I love it! And gorgeous cards too!! Thanks.
