Local Artist based in South West London.
Painting Professionally for over 30 years
Louise has been a professional artist for over 30 years, having sold over 2,000 original paintings, which are in private and corporate collections all over the world.
As well as selling to individuals, her work has been commissioned by international companies such as IBM, Gillette, Coca Cola, Scottish Courage, and John Lewis.
Although now more well known for her vibrant London cityscapes, she was previously well-known for her delicate watercolours of the local area around south west London. Louise has built up an impressive portfolio of work, including hundreds of views of the River Thames and Richmond Park, as well as celebrated architectural cityscapes in Central London.
Over the years, commissions have proved incredibly popular for house portraits, or leaving gifts, or simply where customers can’t find the exact view/size that they want. Her more ambitious commissions have included a two-metre long tryptic (series of three paintings) of Turner’s famous view from Richmond Hill, and a two-metre high view of St Pauls Cathedral, now sitting in the flood-lit atrium of a local resident’s home.

Trained at Central Saint Martins and worked with fashion designer Zandra Rhodes
She was formally trained at Central Saint Martins in London and West Surrey College of Art in Farnham, in fine art and textiles. Louise went on to work for the fashion designer Zandra Rhodes whose influence is apparent in her recent works.
High Quality Giclees on Canvas
In the last couple of years, Louise and Tolis have moved into publishing, reproducing high quality prints on canvas of some of the more popular pieces. These have proved incredibly popular and provide their clientele with a more affordable option, with prices ranging from £135 to £650. Their in-house operation allows customers to request both the size of the reproduction and framing to fit in the broad range of interiors.
The price of her work varies from around £225 for a small original painting, up to £3,500-£4,000 for a large original painting on canvas.
