Biography

I have always perused my creativity, having inherited handmade wooden workstations bursting full of oil paints, brushes and palette knifes from my Taid; whom was also a keen painter. I studied 'Fine Art' at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) from 2005-2008 by moving from North Wales to London to pursue my passion. My practice explores painting; mainly working in spray-paint, emulsion & acrylic.

 

My painting practice focuses on colour theory through expressive marks mark making to produce abstract expressionistic paintings. I usually start my paintings with a blank canvas. I sometimes like to use abandoned paintings as a base for some of my works. In contrast I love to sit and draw in black and white in-between my paint drying. I use inspiration from my works to make craft items, prints & jewellery to sell online and at craft markets.

 

Born in North Wales, UK in 1985; I currently live and work in North West England.

Artist Statement

Gweni-Louu's current practice has an outwardly strong emphasis on colour and pattern; which drives the production of abstract expressionistic paintings mainly on canvas. She explores her own life experiences, observations of people and nature with her own spirituality to create a visual response. Her deep connection with paint translates through expressive mark making, bold strokes and colour play. With a background in Fine Art, Gweni Louu's work moves across from painting to drawing, craft and design.
