Louise Fairchild is a London based artist who gained a Fine Art (BA Hons) Degree at Reading University, after a Foundation Year at Sheffield Art College, and worked as an illustrator and artist worldwide for many years.
Commissions in this period include British Airways, Barclays Bank PLC, The Home Office, Fortnum and Mason, Bloomsbury Publishing, Boots the Chemist, Blass Wine Estates, Random House Publishing, Woolwich Building Society and Marks and Spencer PLC.
She also had numerous portrait commissions for the board of directors of companies such as Sainsburys Plc, Fidelity Investments International and PriceWaterhouseCoopers, as well as a monthly commissioned portrait of a prominent figure in business or government, for the CBI magazine.
Louise explains her work by saying, “My interest is in the landscape, inspired originally from the rural landscapes of Derbyshire and Ireland, the two places where I spent my childhood, and subsequently the landscapes from my travels and living by the river. My passion focuses on big skies and the emotive impact of light on the land, especially early morning or last light, and an attempt to capture the exquisite, elusive, vaporous and ephemeral luminosity of it.”
