Louise Body studied Painting at Nottingham Trent University and graduated in 1996 with a BA Hons in Fine Art. Her love of painting began as a child, both her grandmothers were artists and Louise’s parents both went to art school. After studying, Louise’s career took a slight detour into the world of design. In 2003 she set up her own company, designing and producing wallpaper and fabric. Louise’s wallpapers were sold worldwide and led to some exciting collaborations with brands such as Paul Smith, Dr Martens and Osborne & Little. In March 2020 Louise made the decision to leave the world of wallpapers and textiles to paint full-time.
