I paint images that inspire me to forever capture a moment in time. My aim is to reflect the way the elements of nature combine to create a particular mood or energy. The light, season, weather, scenery are always changing: so my ambition is to paint my impression of that moment in a beautiful piece of art.
I love to work with oils as they are fluid but also rich in movement, texture and colour. I paint en plein air or in my studio from still life set ups or photographs of the places I have visited. I travel extensively throughout the world and I frequently find impactful subjects to paint.
Kris Kruse, New York Art Collector
"I first came across Louise's paintings in 2012 and was immediately drawn to her work. I've been collecting in New York for 35 years and was taken by her ability to capture the nuances of an image and express a rich depth of feeling. There's always an emotional response with her stuff. I told my friends about her and she promptly sold another 7 paintings. Louise has a unique touch that continues to please with time.”
Rebecca Schweiger, Founder The Art Studio NY and NYC Acclaimed Artist
"Not only is Louise Clarke an extraordinary artist, she's an incredible person. Her artistic talent shines through in every brushstroke of her paintings. Her landscapes are not only expressive, they are magical and make me feel more alive. When I look at Louise's paintings, I am pulled into another world. Her paintings sooth me, inspire me, and take me beyond the everyday."
Dr Sofia Fisher, Discerning newcomer
"In 2016 I attended my first ever art exhibition and I was drawn to a painting, by Louise Clarke, of the Sydney Opera House at night. The painting was, and remains, the most enchanting work of art, reminding me of the excitement of walking towards the Opera House to attend Madama Butterfly on a clear and star filled night. This memory is bought to life every time I admire this beautiful painting."
Cyndee and Ian Dorant, Collectors in Western Australia
"We recently commissioned Louise to produce a piece for our home. From first contact to scoping and final delivery, Louise stood out as one who conducts herself as professionally with clients as she devotes herself to her art. Taking the opportunity to visit her studio set amongst the coastal dunes of south-west Western Australia we worked with her to develop a brief, taking ideas from her as well as inspiration from her extensive collection of original works. The time between placing our order to delivery was surprisingly fast. The finished product is amazing and so reminiscent of where we grew up. It’s a great addition to our home."
