Growing up, if she wasn’t drawing in a field, she was painting and making things.
As she grew up even more, she went on to study Textile Design at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, and worked as a designer at John Rocha and Helen Cody. She branched out from there and received an MA in Creative Digital Media, leading her to work as a graphic designer at creative agencies with many well known brands.
All of this experience was amazing… but she realised what captures her most is where it all started, drawing wild things.
Louise’s personal artwork expresses her deep love of nature and explores universal themes of love, hope, vulnerability and freedom. She builds visual stories through use of watercolour paint, inks and pencil.
Her commercial illustration work has appeared on magazine covers, in books, in advertisements and on the walls of buildings.
Yes, the fashion houses were glamorous, but it’s birds that make her heart sing.
