I love to paint. It's as simple as that. Light, colour, texture, mood. To translate it to 2 dimensions is a passion that will take me to the end!
Louise Baker is a painter working in oil and acrylic, known primarily for her thoughtful impressionistic compositions. Her paintings are characterized by a sensitive use of colour and dynamic brushstrokes: with her subjects sometimes dissolving in their pale environments in a flurry of unfocused strokes; sometimes jumping out of the canvas in contrasting bright colours with some judicious strong lines; but always capturing a mood, the quality of light, a season, a sensation. She earned a degree in design and visual communications from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Since her retirement as an art director, she has made painting a priority. Louise has taught workshops and accepts private commissions. Louise has been part of many juried group exhibitions as well as one woman shows. Her paintings are held in private collections throughout North America and Europe.
