Largely a self taught artist, Louise went on to gain a distinction in her Access to Art & Design course at Portsmouth University as a mature student and studied for her degree at Winchester School of Art. Louise Zeilla Abbott has enjoyed art from a very young age, drawing and painting have often played a large part of her life.

Having enjoyed some years spent working in exhibitions teams at art galleries, she now spends her time working as a freelance artist and workshop facilitator.

When she isn't working away on the commissions, Louise creates works for sale at local exhibitions and fairs. Check the events page to see where she, or her work, will be next.

Louise prefers to work in watercolour and acrylic but enjoys using various print methods as well, she also sculpts in a variety of media.

Louise is a proud mother to two beautiful young boys; Austin born in January 2007 and Edwin, born November 2011. She's based in Peel Common, near Fareham, Gosport, Portsmouth and Southampton in Hampshire but her clients are all over the UK. The joys of modern technology!

Louise Zeilla Abbott is an artist whose portraits of pets and people are very much in demand. Her waiting list is currently approximately 4 weeks, although urgent work may be considered.

She prefers to work from photographs as children and animals often have a habit of moving!

Her bespoke names, beach huts and campervans are all proving popular right now.
