Almost by accident, Louise discovered watercolour painting and drawing at the same time. She is mainly a self-taught artist.
Her sensitive yet powerful paintings describe and tell, in pigments and shapes, passions and emotions. More recognized for rendering portraits and characters, she has no desire to limit herself in her painting themes. She is approaching every subject like a portrait. To her, the environments that people create to live their lives, even in the very most simple moments, say a lot about themselves. A sky, a tree trunk, a flower … each have a personality and transports us in an atmosphere which translates emotions.
Her paintings have been selected to be part of prestigious national and international juried exhibitions such as the ones held by the American Watercolor Society, the Transparent Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, North East Watercolor Society, the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colours and the Federation of Canadian Artists. She also participated in group shows in Europe.
Louise is a signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, of the Canadian Watercolour Society (Société canadienne de l’aquarelle, SCA), of the Institute des Arts Figuratifs and of the North East Watercolor Society (USA).
