Louise is an artist and musician who grew up in Orkney, a group of islands in the north of Scotland. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2011 with an honours degree in Visual Communications, specialising in photography.

Growing up on a farm, she has always been inspired and influenced by the landscape and nature around her and feels privileged to be able to use her creativity and love for art and music to make her living. Louise shoots mainly on 35mm film using an Olympus OM2 once belonging to her father. She uses natural light to capture images which are honest and organic.

As a fiddle player, Louise enjoys a wide variety of music, but mostly plays and writes folk and traditional Scottish music. After being awarded a place and a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music, Louise traveled to Boston in September 2015 to take some time to explore other genres of music.

Between her studies, Louise has been concentrating on her project ‘Out of My Own Light’ exploring her family ties to Canada and her own connection to her late Grandmother, Margaret Sarah Tait.
