Lou W Artist Bio:

I’ve experimented with various mediums over the years but nowadays I work exclusively with ink. Marker pens to be exact. I find them so much more intuitive than paints, all that mixing and dirty palettes detracted from the simple act of creating for me. I love the vibrancy of colour I can achieve with ink and I just adore that the colour I used today was exactly the same colour yesterday and will be the same colour tomorrow. It does of course mean I have to have a pen for each and every shade of colour I need, you’ll often find me with eight pens in my hand at any given time! It also means that there’s no room for error. If I make a mistake, I can’t paint over it and do it again but somehow that just makes me bolder. My work itself seems to fall into two distinct categories that relate to two of my big loves in life. The first is the human body (one of the reasons I studied biomedical science!). The human body is a marvel in its complexity and its beauty. It truly is a miracle which loses none of its wonder the more I study it. The other is animals. Yes, I’m one of those people who prefers animals to people. I love animals, my favourites would have to include dogs (I don’t trust people who don’t like dogs) and goats. I’m biding my time until I have some land on which I can raise some goats of my own! I do have a dog, a German Shepherd, who I love with all my heart. Currently, I’m working a lot on pet portraits. It’s great to connect with people who also really love their animals. I’m also working on a collection focusing on yoga which to me is the human body performing poetry, its mesmerising to see an experienced yogi practice. I do practice yoga but I must admit that that my own practice is far from mesmerising, I’m certain it feels better than it looks! If there’s anything else you’d like to know about me, just ask, I’d love to hear from you 🙂
