Louise Berkett

'Since a very early age Louise has loved creating gifts and art often 'helping' her parents alter carpet and wall colours without either party knowing. Despite some serious telling offs this love of art was also nurtured and continued to grow as did her passion of the sea due to an ocean loving family and summer camping holidays. 

Louise has a double major Photography and Graphic Design degree and has been working and creating in the creative industry for 16 years. This new series of works are an extension from the last and continue to express her love and passion of coastal New Zealand and now incorporate people enjoying it too.  Typically her photos are captured during roadies in a 1970's caravan with her husband at the wheel and two gorgeously delightful children asking "are we there yet?"

As the underlying image is a 'photo' Louise lists as a limited edition but as each artwork is individually textured, painted and resined by hand they could be classed as original
