About

Louise Clarke is a landscape artist painting in the impressionist style. She is based in Western Australia and has sold work around the world. Louise works with oils for the texture, fluidity of movement and richness of colour. She paints en plein air and in her studio in the south west.

Louise travels extensively throughout the world and finds unique subjects that inspire beautiful and expressive landscape paintings. Collectors have commented on "her ability to capture the nuances of an image and express a rich depth of feeling. There’s an emotional response."

Education

Louise has always been interested in art but initially decided to pursue a different path that enabled her to travel and experience the world. After finishing a Bachelor of Commerce at Curtin University and qualifying as a CPA, she worked in the UK and US for 15 years. She decided to paint full time 4 years ago, following a highly successful exhibition in New York in 2013. Louise is mainly self taught but has studied with artists such as Rebecca Schweiger at The Art Studio of New York, award winning US Plein Air artist Joe Paquet and renowned Australian Landscape Artist John Wilson. 

Returning to Australia has opened up a world of new landscapes, and the extremes of WA are a huge inspiration.
