Louise Bell is a practice-based illustration Ph.D. researcher funded by AHRC through the 3D3 Consortium at Falmouth University. Her research explores the interweaving of place, history and memory using illustration as a historiographic arts practice. Themes of walking, post-memory, aerial viewpoints, mapping, urban trauma and breakage are explored in her thesis – ‘Traversing a wounded city: turns and passages across place, past and page’.

Louise has exhibited regularly and delivered papers at numerous conferences including; An attempt at revealing a place through walking (Devonport Guildhall, 2019);  Translating Fragments (Falmouth, 2019); 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).  A full list of exhibitions, papers and articles can be found on a CV link below.
