Born in the U.K to a family of artists Louise was destined to follow a similar path. Louise trained as an illustrator and was freelance for over a decade working in both the advertising and publishing fields. After the birth of her children she swapped the deadlines of commercial art for painting and in particular portraiture. People and the figure have always been at the heart of Louise’s work. After several relocations including; Birmingham; The Cotswolds and Qatar in the Middle East Louise is finally and happily settled in Ilfracombe, Devon. Whilst back in the U.K Louise continues her commissioned work but has also begun to explore other artistic fields including ‘Money Art’. She is very much enjoying the creative freedom that this gives her and works under the name ‘Birdy’.
