我喜欢在平凡中看到不平凡。我出生在苏塞克斯郡,但大部分时间在萨福克郡长大。我享受了这两个乡村世界最好的东西;美丽而富有戏剧性的苏塞克斯丘陵和风景如画的萨福克村庄。我成长的环境通过它的季节性色彩、扭曲的树木的形状、古老、巨大和弯曲的山丘本身激励了我,这些也影响了画家和雕塑家约翰·纳什。在Worthing艺术学院的预科课程结束后,我没有去Trent理工学院学习戏剧设计,而是成为了一名修复师学徒。修复为我的3D工作提供了一个出口,我继续专攻保护工作,包括雕刻和木雕。在业余时间,我以画画为乐,并接受肖像画的委托。我从1998年起就住在诺福克。这里的人民和影响他们生活的产业激励着我; the wonderful coastline, its expansive skies and the light that exposes all of our surroundings in defined colour and shape. It is especially beautiful on a crisp winter’s day. Often on walks I see hares shoot out from almost under my feet on the edge of a field. Rare and unusual birds nest in our marshes offering the naturalist sights to behold. I have been specializing in teaching art to groups of vulnerable people for over a decade now; working with the NHS, Break charity, Action for Children and Salthouse and Cley exhibitions, delivering a variety of Art workshops including some relief printmaking courses. Concerned with the buildup of non-recycled rubbish in our lives I began re-using polystyrene as part of my relief printmaking practice; by drawing designs on them and teaching others to do the same. I have been expanding my printmaking practice and recently finished my City and Guilds Level 3 in Printmaking with four distinctions. I am also like to visually explore the meaning of our personal objects; standing alone absent of humanity. This can be a single object or a group of them such as in a still life. Sometimes objects in certain contexts, speak volumes. www.louisemaclaren.com诺福克
