Artist Statement

With so much focus on destruction in our current culture it is important for all of my work to be positive. I paint growth in all of its beauty. It’s important for all of my work to be beautiful. I marvel in the potency of feminine themes for I know first-hand that delicate is not one-dimensional. Feminine is not necessarily female. Gender is a construct. We are always a display. An exhibition of our own unique story. I’m fascinated with your story. Her story. Their story. His story. And so I create and new stories unfold.

About the artist…

Lou has always amused an unconventional style whether attire or artistic. Flora inspires her. For before pinks burst from buds an entire flower is green. Light lights Lou: sunlight, starlight and fire on female faces have lead her to creative places. She adores chiaroscuro and simply relishes in complex reflections. She is intrigued with the curious complexities of female cultural constructions. Lou is drawn to feminine as well as draws feminine. A cat-like cat lover, Lou is fascinated by felines which are the essence of feminine fauna. And while she loves a cup of tea in the garden, barefoot of course—she wants to look snazzy. Always dressed in dresses it is Lou’s eccentricity to do things like dig in the dirt looking darling. With a keen inclination towards fashion and feminine Lou’s artistic talents have inevitably lead her to create Loulure. Loulure is Lou’s creative endeavor.
