Drawing upon various paper art disciplines such as Origami, Papercutting and Paper Scultpure, Louise transforms the humble sheet of paper into bespoke pieces of art for a variety of audiences. She has worked with communities, libraries, galleries and well known craft brands to deliver site specific installations and custom workshops. Through her paper engineering skills Louise has collaborated with various creative agencies to design and deliver site specific work along with live demonstrations to assist in bringing an event to life. Louise’s practice is deep rooted in her former career as a Medical Scientist and she attacks each project with the same precision and detail as her previous laboratory world demanded. Previous clients include Facebook, Instagram, Westfield and National Gallery of Victoria.
Why you should share your creative passion with the world
In this session I’d like to empower young people to find their creative voice. I’d like to draw on my experiences thus far to show that we have many different jobs and identities as we grow up and that the truest voice is the one that makes us happy and allows us to be creative with others. I would love to do some kind of interactive session with them – perhaps folding some origami and encouraging them to follow the idea of ‘each one teach one’. The pieces the students make could be used in a larger piece as well.
