Hello, I’m Louise! I live in Kent and work out of my home studio accompanied by Arnie the house rabbit. I recently finished an MA in Children’s Book Illustration in Cambridge, which was extremely rewarding and has led me to rediscover a love of paper and collage.
I am most inspired when outside, with a sketchbook, surrounded by nature. I own an Orange VW T25 Campervan which is at the heart of all adventures.
I love drawing and collaging from observation and find most of my work derives from time spent drawing outdoors.
I enjoy working on stories inspired by facts and making up quirky animal tales.
I love the playful nature of collage, I feel like my inner child when creating artwork with paper. I’m passionate about bookbinding and I enjoy making patterns!
In 2017 I was shortlisted for The Batsford Prize. I am represented by Alice at The Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency.
