Hello! I'm Louisa. Painter, illustrator and writer.
Interested in all things creative, I'm a South African based in London and work at an auction house, where I'm surrounded by the wonders of art history. I'm lucky to work in the field of my passions but alongside this continue to paint, draw and write.
After completing my BA in Economics and Psychology I turned toward developing my creative skills and went on to study Scenic Painting and Prop Making. This led me to the UK to work in the arts. After a couple of years working on freelance projects I did an MA in Art History which directed me into auctions and the modern and contemporary art market.
The world of theatre reminded me of my childhood thirst for the imaginative and I've been painting and drawing ever since. I'm not tied to any medium or technique. I like to explore materials, ideas, stories and see how I can realise my thoughts. I like painting big and painting small, from wall murals to watercolours, anything sparks my enthusiasm.
More recently I've been interested in the world of graphics and advertising so am doing some training in graphic design and writing copy. Combining text and image appeals to my creative and academic brain simultaneously so I am excited to see where it may go.
If you like what you see, get in touch. I am available for commissions and you soon will be able to purchase watercolours made to order from this site.
