Louisa's work centres around the persistent human desire to belong within the natural world. She considers environment and how we navigate place through nature as well as notions of home and belonging in her pieces. Her depictions of the natural world begin with mindful walking through the Cheshire countryside and on her return to the studio, she uses loose, gestural markmaking techniques in paint to describe the essence of the environment. The outcomes are not intended to be of somewhere specific, but instead illustrate the nostalgic feeling of a place and the sense of belonging that comes with recognisable natural forms and landmarks, helping us to recognise our home. In her pieces, Louisa is looking to capture the influences that the ever-changing light, seasons and weather have on the natural world in watercolours and acrylic paints; depicting shifting, fleeting moments in time to create ethereal landscape paintings.
