All designs feature Louise’s original illustrations in her loose, energetic style. Having always loved the physical drawing process, Louise likes to remain true to her traditional roots, maintaining a handmade, hand-drawn feel in all of her designs. Working with pen and ink, watercolour, gouache, acrylics and any of kind of paint she can get her hands on, she combines colourful inky washes, intricate line-work, playful mark-marking and a lot of negative space to create designs that are quirky, colourful and on-trend.
As a self-confessed crazy cat lady and general lover of all animals ever, Louise takes all her inspiration from the animal kingdom; and it's not unusual for her to pop off on an adventure half way across the world at a moment's notice, in pursuit of 'first-hand' sightings and painting sessions... Always hoping to prompt a smile from the viewer, her characters are whimsical, happy and generally a bit more flexible than their real-life counterparts. Perfect for celebrating all occasions!
