About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Freelance Illustrator
Location United Kingdom
Introduction I was born in Wiltshire. I did a BTEC General Art & Design course at Trowbridge Technical College and a BA Hons in Visual Communication at Wolverhampton University. I have been working as a freelance illustrator for over twenty years; I work mainly in children's publishing but also for magazines, ad agencies, advertising, toys and clothing. A full client list can be viewed on my website www.louisegardner.com. I lived in London for over ten years before I moved back to the south west where I get to enjoy the lovely views from my window while I work. I live in Somerset with my partner Toby & cat Dottie Noodle. I particularly like drawing cows...
