Louis Humphrey THE ARTIST
I have always had a great interest in art and started painting at the age of 10.
I studied art at Manchester Art College, one of the top Art Colleges in England, obtaining the highest grade, a First Class Honours Degree with Commendations. Moving to London I spent many years developing painting styles and techniques.
I have produced work for numerous collections in Australia, Canada, America, Poland and China and have also exhibited in galleries in Ireland including Belfast and Dublin.
I have visited gallery owners in Boston, North Carolina, South Carolina and Montreal with a traveling exhibition of paintings and in recent years I have organised, created and run, for a range of abilities, local art classes and painting demonstrations. I have illustrated numerous children's books and although my first love is landscapes and street scenes I also paint portraits of people and animals.
I have over 40 years experience as a designer and illustrator in the design and advertising world with many top clients in the fashion and cosmetic business such as Mary Quant, Sally Hansen, Miners and Outdoor Girl. I have appeared as Artist of the Month in one of Ireland's leading magazines and I have been featured in many local publications.
I have always been fascinated by art and how it can work with different mediums on lots of different supports and materials .
I love the idea of bringing art to fashion and I want to share it with you.
