Louise's still life work in oils has been a sell-out success since, as a debut painter, she joined our gallery team in summer 2022. Over the last 12 months, she has completed a vast series of still life studies to universal acclaim, demonstrating her mastery of surface texture and her deft ability with pigment, light and composition.


In these classic still life studies, colour, composition and surface texture are all spot-on. This duo of still life paintings, purchaseable as a set or individually, is truthful and beautiful - and perfectly lit.


They hint at long, sun-soaked Medieterranan and open air meal times. Louise has caught all the round plumpness of the lemons and given them a wonderfully simple background and staging which highlight the colour contrasts and the tranquil mood.


The blue dish has a soft sheen on the glazed surface and the overall feeling of the paintings harks back to southern European farmhouse kitchens and simple scullery scenes. 


    Louise trained in design. Since graduating from Goldsmiths University 1993-1997, her work has been in textiles and, predominantly, in glass. Working alongside her husband in their glass studio in the Cotswolds her glass pieces become progressively more representational and illustrative.


    Her lifelong interest in drawing and painting has developed over time into a redirection of focus and she is now painting in oils. She works mostly alla prima and from life.


    Drawn to the beauty in everyday life, objects and nature, Louise strives to develop a visual language in paint that communicates something of the essence of the qualities of light, form, colour and atmosphere of a subject. She has a remarkable ability to render surface texture and colour, especially in her small-scale still life works.
