Louise Wells is a textile artist based in Perth, Western Australia. She has always had a love of textiles right from when her left handed Nanna tried to teach her to crochet right handed. A long break from a full time textile practice in her 20′s to raise her children allowed Louise to learn and explore many areas of textile interest for pure enjoyment. Her current textile practice is the result of this development and life experience. She has a passion for colour and finds pattern in architecture and nature a continual inspiration. Louise is fascinated by the hidden stories we all have, often using this as a theme in her work.
Louise lives with her wonderful husband, 3 gorgeous teenagers/young adults, a very hairy golden retriever and a mini dachshund. Life is never boring!
