Louise is a painter, not attached to any particular school, deriving ideas, tastes and styles from various sources. She paints in a mixed medium of watercolour, acrylic and gouache on a variety of hand-made papers but in particular Japanese handmade paper called "Washi". Each piece of paper has it's own unique character, which dictates the painting technique and subject matter, with the result that some of the paintings are detailed while others work more specifically with the colour and texture of the paper. Her painting is primarily influenced by the Irish countryside and its rich colour and people.
