A body cast sculptor, Louise is predominantly known for life casting - covering famous people (such as Michael Portillo, Heather Mills, Eddie the Eagle Edwards), models and private clients with plaster. She then makes a copy of her model covered with biographical and other imagery which is cast into bronze. She works a lot with high achieving sportsman and her most widely reported show, ‘Body Casting Olympians’ at the Mall Galleries London 2012, featured collaborative work produced with Team GB models including Dame Kelly Holmes and Kriss Akabusi MBE.

 

Louise also produces smaller or larger than life sized figures and heads for interior and exterior display. Her latest body of work focuses on the regenerative and healing nature of gardens, with figures woven through with flowers and other growing forms.

 

She exhibits, and is collected internationally, both as a sculptor and draughtsman. Her drawings are usually from observation, comparatively small, complex and overlap like the surface design on her sculptures.
