Louisa Crispin

Entranced by the cycle of growth and decay, Louisa captures the details on beautiful smooth Strathmore paper using ultra sharp pencils and graphite powder. It’s quiet in the studio, distanced from the world as she looks ever closer at plants, insects and birds. Texture, shadows, silhouettes and movement created with marks and tone, it’s rarely about the colour. As well as membership of the Free Painters and Sculptors and the Society of Graphic Fine Art, Louisa is a Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists. She has links to the Royal West of England Academy, Sevenoaks Visual Arts Forum, the Cranbrook Art Show and Pure Arts Group. 

Her prizewinning drawings are held in private collections internationally and she is regularly accepted to Open Exhibitions in London and beyond.
