Contemporary Artist: Louise McNaught

 

Contemporary artist, Louise McNaught uses nature and animals as her primary source for inspiration and says her degree in Fine Art at the University of Greenwich (2012) helped her achieve what she does today. It is so reassuring to hear this as an undergraduate student and budding artist myself!

The use of vibrant colour created by using neon and metallic paints gives a sense of uniqueness and life to her paintings, although even McNaught’s delicate use of pencil brings this sense of depth also. There is something mesmerising about her work and how she portrays nature as a powerful force, emphasing their beauty. I also love the way the artist uses a variety of materials to paint on which gives her pieces a certain edge.

More of McNaught’s work can be viewed on her Facebook page and Website.
