Her arts practice focuses on the interdependent relationship between emotional and physical wellbeing and the role of the artist as social commentator. Current work includes challenging attitudes towards mental ill health and the promotion of emotional wellbeing through socially engaged research and an eclectic practice of videos, performance and sculpture.

Her pedagogical research focuses on the construction of value-based praxis in Higher Education learning and teaching.

Louise has exhibited work and presented her research both nationally and internationally. She has been commissioned by both private and public bodies to create a number of public artworks, complete research, feasibility studies, education, training and manage arts projects. She has received a number of awards both for her arts practice and pedagogic research. She is currently undertaking doctoral research.
