It is with great pleasure that we welcome the well known figurative artist Louise Dear to our fold. Louise has been hugely successful over recent years with a lengthy waiting list for commissions and artwork. We have no doubt that this demand will now grow to new heights with massive interest already being shown by our customers for artwork and exhibitions. As for Louise herself, this is her in her own words. Welcome aboard! "I am a painter with a simple ambition to create beautiful paintings. I make large, contemporary, figurative works. I am passionate about colour, shocking, vibrant and intense, continually exploring the power it has to invade our senses and influence our emotions. I work on large sheets of prefabricated aluminium, priming the surface then throwing, rubbing, pouring and dripping inks and dyes, glitter and glosses, to form a background. This is then sanded, scratched and distressed, depending on what image will be overlaid. I continually experiment with a multitude of materials, seduced by their substances, fascinated with their movement, individual textures and how they respond to one another.
