Louise is never sure whether she is an illustrator, visual artist, academic researcher or writer. Without doubt is an endless interest in fragments, void spaces, landscape and the finding of stories or meaning in the gaps in-between. Her research and practice explores the interweaving of place, history and memory. She is influenced by W. G. Sebald, Tacita Dean, Deconstruction and Zen aesthetics, as well as the visual language of archaeology and archives.

Louise has exhibited regularly and delivered papers at numerous conferences including; Decriminalising Ornament: The Pleasures of Pattern (Cambridge, 2018); Mind the Gap: the behaviour of holes in a complex text (Falmouth, 2018), Landscape by Design (Cardiff, 2018); Illustrating Identity/ies (Nancy, 2017); FOMO, (Falmouth, 2017); Shaping the View (Edinburgh, 2016); Sophronia (Falmouth, 2016). 

Louise is currently working on a practice-based illustration Ph.D. at Falmouth University funded by AHRC through the 3D3 consortium. Using a historiographic illustration practice to explore themes of aerial viewpoints, mapping, urban trauma, collective reparation and Zen repair principles – her title is Birds, Bombs and Walking a Wounded City.
