Louise is an illustrator based in Hebden bridge. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2009, studying Visual Communication.
I have always been obsessed with drawing. I create my designs by drawing, printing, cutting and finding collage material and textures, then I compile them using a computer. My biggest heroes are David Hockney, Pierro Fornasetti and Pablo Picasso for trying out a bit of everything.
Whilst living in Canada and America for a year in 2012, I worked in an amazing stationery shop which inspired me to start my own company The Printed Peanut It's a great way to apply my drawings and designs to a variety of products. I am currently making a set of pre-made illustrated pass the parcels.
