Louise was born and raised in a farming community in Alberta. Her family vacations as a child in and around the Canadian Rockies instilled in Louise an appreciation of the wilderness and the beauty of nature that she continues to enjoy, living in Canmore.
Watercolour is a very portable medium. It fits easily into a backpack, boat or helicopter and can be set up in a mountain environment in minutes. Louises paints often travel with her. Living in the heart of the Rockies, she and her family are able to spend their time exploring the peaks and valleys that she loves to portray with her vibrantly coloured brushes.
Her paintings can be found in private and corporate collections around the world.
