A chat with Louise Russell, Painter/Sculptor
In this podcast we talk about an artist's journey from starting out to having a solo exhibition
Louise Russell is a painter, loves paint using vibrant colours and painting in an abstract style.
“Louise’s urge to take up painting was first ignited by a visit to the Art Gallery of South Australia, where she saw artist Ben Quilty’s series of works inspired by the abandoned lifejackets of asylum seekers washed up on a beach in Greece. She was in awe of the power of Quilty’s art and “how he made sense of his world with a brush”.
After several sessions with an art therapist, she realised painting might help her make sense of her own world — especially the grief and trauma she had kept buried deep inside for decades while raising a family and helping others through her work as a palliative care nurse.”
Art proved transformative in a way Louise could never have imagined.”

“This was such a pleasure to interview Louise for this podcast, Louise’s passion for her art and how it’s transformed her life is an inspiration to us all. Her paintings and sculptured figures are so uplifting and fun you can’t help feel good when you see them. You just know that Louise early in her art business will be going onto to great things with her art and will continue to enjoy the happy life that she has created for herself and her family.
