I can honestly say I was genuinely blown away with the beautiful artwork Lou created for me. The portrait of my daughter is stunning and such a unique gift. Thank you!

Lou has a wonderful way with children and a talent for expressing the feeling of a specific- and all too fleeting-moment in time. We all love the portrait of our daughter, and how it manages to capture personality in those pencil strokes.

We love this portrait of our daughter...Lou has  totally captured her essence and the attention to detail in the smile is amazing.

Home: Testimonials


I am a child portrait artist who specialises in capturing the essence of a child in a range of mediums including pencil, charcoal and paint. I am also a practicing child psychologist and my years of studying what makes children tick helps me to communicate the true spirit of their personality in my portraits. I love to draw and paint children when they are off guard or engaged in their own world of play away from the adult gaze. Here, I think the true nature of a child emerges, perhaps only glimpsed by onlookers but immediately recognisable to a loved one.

As a mother, I know the importance of those rare and treasured moments and how quickly time passes. I aim to create art that captures the love a mother, father or grandparent feels when they look at their child and to seal those memories forever.
