‘Falling For You’ is a printed china cup from a Limited edition of 100. The work of Louise McNaught takes its inspiration from the natural world: raising the status of animals and creatures to the majestic and sublime, McNaught creates bold images, using striking colour and compositional techniques.



A breathtaking print, ‘Falling For You’ depicts a huge, dying bee, caught in the moment of falling, against bright, turquoise backdrop. McNaught employs her signature ‘bleed’ motif, with soft, thin lines of black and grey paint running down the print to capture the bee’s descent. Saturated with Biblical allusion, the print speaks to the falling numbers of the white-tailed bumble bee, brought about by mankind’s destruction of their natural habitat.



The almost divine status of the bee is beautifully rendered in the striking colouring of black and amber gold and the skilled attention to exquisite, intricate detail.



"This piece is highlighting the plight of the white-tailed bumble bee which has become endangered due to falling numbers because of pesticides and loss of habitat. The title plays on this in that they are indeed 'falling for' mankind, because of mankind. Yet these alchemists are very much needed pollinators and their divine status is hinted at by the upward drips...." Louise McNaught.

About The Artist - Louise McNaught


Louise McNaught completed her Fine Art Degree BSc (Hons) in 2012 at the University of Greenwich, and she has continued to work as a professional artist ever since, with international representation. She also became a published Author in 2018. Her artwork has also been featured in art fairs in Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels and all over the UK.



Louise‘s creations feature nature and animals, where the animals are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their presence and depiction. McNaught's work is motivated by emotive and spiritual experiences which has manifested in a mixed-media approach. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man's destruction of nature - which flutters jewel-like in the balance.

When focusing on endangered species the imagery often takes on a duality of not only what is happening to the animal itself, but also reflects how we feel psychologically about the effect the human race is having on these species. Her focus on endangered species has manifested in a book called 'Survival', which Louise created with worldwide publishers Big Picture Press in September 2018. The idea came from the Solo Show Louise was doing with George Thornton Gallery in 2016, also called 'Survival'. The book shows 20 endangered animals painted by McNaught, with facts about the animals plight and conservation efforts. 'Survival' is sponsored by the well-known charity Tusk.org with proceeds of the book going toward helping their cause.
