Louise Scott is a Glasgow-based artist who specialises in copper plate etchings and marine life images.
After receiving her degree in fine art printmaking from Cheltenham College of Art in the 1980’s she went on to gain a Diploma in Countryside Management, allowing her to combine both her love of the natural world and art. She previously lived in Orkney for 17 years where she ran the Inkstone Gallery in the beautiful village of St Margaret’s Hope. She is a member of the Glasgow Print Studio and the Glasgow Society of Women Artists.
All of Louise’s inspiration comes from the natural world and the creatures that inhabit earth, air and water. She works on Copper plate using traditional age-old techniques, which uses an acid resistant wax, blackened with soot from a taper, and then the imagery drawn on with a fine needlepoint and a magnifying glass.
Each image is part of an edition no larger than 100 and, as well as her original etchings, she has a range of giclee prints and cards; she believes that art should be available to everyone at a price they can afford.
A selection of Louise's work is currently available in the lower gallery at Bonhoga.
