I am passionate about printmaking.
It is the creative tension in printmaking that draws me in and motivates me to pursue my artistic path. For me, inspiration can arise in an instant, often provoked by light, shadow, texture, or color. But then the long processes in printmaking slow me down, forcing me to be patient as I experiment with images and techniques, and see my ideas come to life through printing. I find that this creative tension is what keeps me open to the greatest surprise and artistic potential in my work.
I am encouraged that the Bay Area shows support, appreciation, and delight in its dedication to the arts and I am excited and grateful as I pursue a place in our thriving art community.
“My work is a quest for the freedom of poetic space. I use the grid and nature as metaphors of our dream states and desires. I am currently exploring deep space and genomic structures in an effort to raise awareness of our fragile planet experiences.”
Louise was born in the Big Bend country of West Texas. Her childhood was spent in the sere plains, painting and drawing from an early age. She earned her BFA from Otis Art Institute in 1993, in painting and sculpture. She lived in Los Angeles and San Francisco until moving to Ohio in 2001, and has since returned to San Francisco where she has a studio at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in Novato.
Her paintings and sculptures focus around the centering line of tension found between the effects of contemporary technologies and the inner, often hidden desires of the human soul.
Louise works mostly in oils, beeswax, birch, linen and canvas. Her award-winning work is collected worldwide including Asia, Australia, USA, Latin America, Canada and Europe.
I returned to printmaking and drawing in 2014 after a career in design and marketing for a ceramic tile company. I am fascinated with found photos and with scientific and industrial textbooks. These images are the inspiration for much of my work. I try to find the elusive balance between their original intent and my interpretation. Employing monoprints, painting, drawing and collage, I build layers to translate and create a new meaning for the images, elevating them to a fine art.
Each new series takes me into uncharted territory with alterations in context producing unexpected and hopefully evocative results.
