Louise Wells is an artist working in textiles and living in Inglewood. Looking at the lost beauty in the ordinary is a major theme she explores, and this has led to more focus on the use of recycled materials, for their suggested narrative and concerns over waste and for the environment. She uses textile techniques including dye, print, stitch, fabric manipulation and layering, often leaving raw, cut, and frayed edges to create texture. Louise's work is inspired by domestic life, family stories and observations on current events. Louise has exhibited her works in a number of solo and group exhibitions and has been shortlisted and won a number of awards. Her work is held in public and private collections.
