Biography / Artist statement
Louise Tomkinson is a qualified art teacher and professional artist.
Louise's style as an artist is uncontained, drawn to fluidity and the urge to be free. Water is an inspiration – it is often used as a symbol of purity and tranquillity but it can also be tempestuous and forbidding, impossible to control.
Louise uses alcohol inks and pure Isopropyl combined with a range of tools/techniques and vision to create vibrant abstracts that are energetic and full of movement. No visual is the same with a different outcome being achieved every time.
Louise uses robust synthetic paper, metal and glass surfaces which allows the inks to move and blend well. She always wears a protective chemical respirator and gloves whilst working due to the toxicity of the inks and pure Isopropyl.
