Louise Clarke

Website Facebook

My name is Louise Clarke and I am an entirely self-taught artist from Northern Ireland originally, though now living in the Falkland Islands. I have had a strong interest in wildlife and the natural world from a very early age, and as a young child I was always drawing pictures of animals from books and magazines...my inspiration comes simply from my love of wildlife and the natural world!

 

I work solely in pencil - coloured or graphite. I love to work in pencil because it allows me to achieve very fine detail, creating the realism that I strive for in my pieces. I love the challenge of bringing the subject to life on the page through capturing expressions, life in the eyes and tiny details in the fur.
