Louise was a former colleague of mine in the Art Department at Torquay Girls' Grammar School. I was her Head of Department. In the time Louise was at our school, she was extremely highly thought of by myself, her other colleagues on the staff and, most importantly, by her students.Louise taught across the entire age and ability range in the same (seemingly) effortless fashion.


Louise had such an easy manner with the pupils and an unquenchable passion for her subject. The result was that the pupils in her charge produced Artwork of the highest order and she developed the skills of the pupils, their visual intelligence and their abilities with a wide range of media and processes. Not only that, but Louise inspired the pupils with the quality of her own artwork as a professional illustrator in her own right.
