“Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.” Gide
I’m Louise (lu) from New Farm, in Brisbane. I started painting when I retired to get out of my head, to play.
My creativity is inspired by a passion for ideas, words, social justice, Nature and a keen eye for the big picture. And by a blank canvas. Sleeping with a blank canvas on the easel awaiting a painting, fills my dreams with colour, images and ideas. I wake, excited to paint.
The task is a team effort between my playful inner child and my somewhat takes life seriously, adult.
We see a room, a wall, a canvas through the prism of how to make the space beautiful in an authentic, playful way. I paint the theme that excites me, she plays with the idea and colours, often with mediums, any which way she fancies. It can be a wild ride. When the finished painting satisfies our eye for beauty and fun, we upload it and hope it touches someone else too.
All paintings are ready to hang, signed front and back and come with a Certificate of authenticity.
