ABOUT ME

My name is Louise and I'm an artist, outdoor practitioner and environmental educator based in Lochaber, Scotland. I am interested in art, environment and ecology and for as long as I can remember I have been drawn to wild places and the Scottish landscape.

 

Originally from Aberdeenshire, I studied Fine Art at Grays School of Art, Aberdeen. Throughout my degree I predominantly worked with moving image, photography and performance. I then went on to obtain an MSc in Environment and Natural Resources from the University of Iceland. It was during my time in Iceland that I grew more aware of the ecological crisis we currently face and where I developed my passion for nature conservation.

With a desire to share these passions with others, I became a qualified mountain leader and I have subsequently worked in environmental education for The Wildlife Trusts and The Outward Bound Trust, where I currently work.

In my creative practice, I explore ideas of environment; our physical and emotional navigation through the world and its unknowns. I focus on the ways in which we experience, perceive and relate to the natural world and ultimately connect to it.
