Louise Alexandra Ellis was born in East Yorkshire and has been creating art for as long as she can remember. It was the colours and patterns in the feathers from her grandma’s feather duster that first inspired her to become an artist at the age of nine. Since graduating with a BA Hons in Illustration, Louise has illustrated for many clients in children’s publishing, editorial, advertising and greetings cards, working traditionally using acrylics, gouache and watercolours.
Louise has a passion for children’s books, feeding her imagination with weird and wonderful things from her sketchbooks. Inspired by the magic and enchantment that nature brings whether on land, in the air or under the ocean Louise likes to think that her illustrations and stories are something that children can relate to and enjoy.
