Louise Catterall is a contemporary portrait artist based in Arundel, West Sussex.  She studied illustration & graphic design at De Montfort University Leicester. Since then she has embarked on a career as a graphic designer. 

She prefers to work on large format canvases, painted predominantly with oil paint, each piece begins with a photo of a subject, all are completed with a large amount of experimentation, she feels that each piece takes her on a journey of new discovery, she hope that it takes the viewer on the same journey and that the pieces convey the character of the portrait subject as well as the feelings and emotions of the time and situation.
She is open for commissions, if you would like to know more please use the contact form.

Louise we cannot thank you enough "Alex" looks incredible and is already hanging on the wall. You have captured him perfectly.i I honestly didn't expect to feel so emotional. My secret fear was that I wouldn't like this one as much as Ollie - how stupid am I - rather like in reality we couldn't choose between them. You are so so talented. Thank you again xxx
