Lou Moore - Drawing, Painting, Photography
"My work has been most profoundly influenced by moving onto a canal boat in 2004. Much of my current work is based on the rural and industrial landscapes of the canals of the West Midlands. I love boats, but the main feature of my work is the landscape, and the feeling of space and peace that is present in even the most urban parts of the canal network. Canals offer a wonderful range of landscapes, textures and structures, and of course the ever present added dimension of water!
I love to work in lots of different mediums. I produce work in Oils, Acrylics, Watercolours, Pastel and Pencil, alongside my Photography and Digital Artworks. Basically I love experimenting with images, colour and shape. I see each picture as a journey, and every time I take it it is different to the one before.
I have had studios in Birmingham, but right now my studio is in a 'butty' narrowboat: an unpowered canal boat towed behind a motor boat. The butty called 'Lowry' is an old working boat made from 1/2 of a late Victorian iron built coal boat from the Dudley area, and it is an amazing space to work in
I am a member of the SAA and of the Guild of Waterways Artists .I have paintings in private and public collections across the UK including Severn Trent Water and Wragg & Co Solicitors"
