Louise O’Hara Prints
Louise O’Hara Mixed Media Artist based in the heart of Cheshire. Creates her original work in her home studio and often described as quintessentially English, romantic and nostalgic. The signed art prints are a new style of artwork for the gallery for 2019.
Studying Fashion and Textiles at degree level, then later went on to gain a PGCE In Adult Education. From then, she taught art courses for over a decade at numerous levels including Foundation Degree. Passion for art and creativity shared by her students sparked the decision to leave teaching and become a full time artist.
Explores the richness of light, colour and texture that she observes around her. Often focusing on rugged northern landscapes with brooding skies and lighter coastal scenes. Based on the memory of a place or a childhood holiday. Each piece produced is usually made from a collection of places visited by Louise.
Louise begins to create her art work by gluing hand painted papers and hand dyed vintage fabrics to heavy weight paper or canvas. Also uses a sewing machine to not only anchor the pieces but also as a tool to draw with. Adding details to boulder-strewn fells, ramshackle fences, and the shifting waves and eddies of sullen grey seas. Furthermore, she will use a soldering iron to create burns or a leaden effect allowing the picture to become three dimensional and tactile.
