Louise studied Media and Production Design at London College of Printing and has been painting since 1998. Over the years she has developed a very recognisable style and has painted many commissions for public buildings and private clients.

Her paintings are predominately figurative and painted in oils on board. She aims to capture the underlying essence of a crowded scene or an individual person in a stylised and naïve fashion. Her paintings have been described as “happy Lowrys”. You can see more of her work at www.louisebraithwaite.co.uk

Collectors of her work include Martin Clunes, Sue Perkins, Celebrity chef John Torode and the late Joan Rivers. She sells her work widely throughout the UK in galleries and art fairs and represents herself and other Hampshire artists through her own gallery Mae Gallery (www.maegallery.co.uk) at The Affordable Art Fairs in both Battersea Park and Hampstead.

Louise’s limited edition prints, greetings cards, wooden jigsaw puzzles and placemats are available from her studio at the Hotwalls and on her website www.madloupublishing.co.uk
