Louisa Burnett-Hall has her studio in Paris, France where she lives and works. She is a part-time drawing tutor at ESAM Design School in Paris.
Direct contact with her material is essential to Louisa’s practice, thus she feels the need to touch the surface of her works creating her marks whether using fingers, rags, pens or other tools, appropriating the subject and making it personal.
She obtained a Fine Art MA Hons, Degree from Edinburgh University where she concurrently studied printmaking, painting and drawing at Edinburgh College of Art.
It was through the practice of printmaking that she found her approach to landscape painting, breaking the images down into its essential expression through mass and line which she continues to develop today. In 2012, Louisa travelled to Iceland and this series, Continuum, is inspired by the streams of bright boiling water running over the rocks at Hvaeageroi.
Louisa has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in many countries including UK, France, Spain and China.
