As co-founder and first president of the Passionate Painters Art Group, Louise  can't remember a time when she wasn't intrigued with the creation of art. In 1993 she began to paint in watercolour but later exchanged that medium for the bold, unapolagetic tools of acrylic, mixed media and collage.


She is drawn to a wide variety of subject matter including abstract, landscape and florals. Her passion for gardening and quilting inform her art which includes both organic and geometric shapes.


"Creating art gives me a reason to get out of bed in the mornings and fills my days with the joy of creating, a sense if acconplishment, and gives me something to strive for- to improve as a painter."


Louise is the owner of Leading Edge Art Workshops which has afforded her the opportunity to study with many internationally known artists. She is also an avid photographer, and uses her own photographs as inspriration for her paintings.



Louise says,"I am an experimental artist...I am the most excited and engaged in my work when I don't know what the outcome will be. I love to play...and let the painting tell me what to do next."
