Louise started her career as a classical ballet dancer which helped shape her love of figurative sculpture. After moving to the United States in 1984, she worked as a massage therapist, which further developed her knowledge of anatomy. Louise learned to sculpt with the human figure but after moving to the rural mountains of Colorado in 1998 the only model in her small studio was her Great Dane. What results are fine classical renderings of dogs that are both humorous and elegant. Louise is a huge animal lover which shows in her incredible sculpture. She captures the bone structure, muscled limbs, folds of skin, dynamic movement and character of her subjects quite perfectly. Louise has won over 100 awards for her work and is an elected member of the National Sculpture Society, the Society of Animal Artists and the National Sculptors' Guild.
