Artist's Profile

Louise Rawlings
Louise Rawlings

Since graduating in the early 90s with a degree in surface decoration, I've enjoyed a long and varied career as a freelance illustrator, working in areas such as greeting cards, calendars, ceramics, fine art and children's books.

One of my main personal achievements last year was to have a painting selected for The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Open Watercolour Exhibition.

As well as watercolour, I also love working in a much more 'naive' mixed media style. I can be inspired by anything from a small magazine cutting, to a walk in the park with my beautiful English Setter, Alfie.

Although I live in the Midlands with my two teenage sons, and aforementioned dog, one of my favourite subjects to paint is our lovely British coastline, Wales being a particular favourite.

I discovered Phoenix through a friend who happened to be at a playgroup when a Trader came in. She was very impressed by the quality and variety of the range, so I decided to take a look at the website and am very pleased I did!

I've only been dealing with Phoenix for a short time, but I can already see that they are very focused on their artists on both a personal and professional level and I hope to have a long and successful working relationship with them.
