About The Artist - Louise McNaught

Louise lives and works in London, UK and is known for her distinctive paintings of animals. We love her commitment to animals and the natural world, which she intends to raise awareness on the delicate relationship between humans and wildlife. 

It is evident her creative skills pair well with her passion and love for creatures. She has said, “I’ve always been inspired by the amazing variety and beauty that exists within the natural world and I just want to communicate this feeling to people and perhaps inspire a connection to this, as I feel humans are living separately from nature.”

Louise studied Fine Art at the University of Greenwich. She has been featured in exhibitions in Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels, and across the UK. She is also the author of the book ‘Survival’ which focuses on endangered species through a twenty-page portrayal of animals and their fight to survive. 

We’ve been working with Louise since 2015.
