Louise's interest in glass began when she studied Public Art and Design at Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, where she specialised in site specific glass and metal sculpture.
After graduating with a 1st class honours degree and winning the Chelsea Harbour Design Centre award for Public Art in the mid 90s, Louise went on to learn the nuts and bolts of her trade, producing architectural glass features whilst working for the globally renowned
Goddard and Gibbs Architectural Stained and Decorative Glass Studios, London (with sister company Zamil Gibbs, based in Saudi Arabia).
During this time she also gained City & Guilds and NVQ qualifications in Welding and Fabrication at the College of North West London, and worked part time for what is now
Flux Metal in order to maintain her metal work skills.
Later, Louise went on to study at the Royal College of Art, London. Here she immersed herself in the production of 3D sculptural glass forms with a view to using the technique of kiln forming within an architectural context.
After graduating from the RCA with an MA in glass and being awarded a Crafts Council Development Award and The Woo Charitable Foundation Graduate Arts Bursary, Louise set up her workshop and studio and went on to develop her own portfolio of site specific glass installations, establishing herself as a successful glass artist. Her work can be found internationally within public and private contexts from London and Paris to Japan.
In addition to undertaking commissioned work, Louise collaborates, exhibits and curates exhibitions, makes jewellery, has worked and taught in Jamaica and lectured at Leeds College of Art and Central Saint Martins, London. Her work has been featured in Keith Cummings's book: 'Contemporary Kiln-formed Glass; A World Survey'.
