Louise Lahive is a visual artist living and working in Hertfordshire.
Her practice is grounded in Oil on Canvas but her most recent work uses mixed media and experimental materials.
The starting point for her projects centres around our relationship to nature and the limits of our knowledge.
Using natural processes Louise develops methods of creating patterns on to the canvas. These patterns are incorporated as a layer above the images, and worked in through colour.
“As I progress I am trying to find a way of balancing obverse elements within the tradition of painterly language”
