Louise Hewitt

Louise is a talented ceramicist, textile artist, storyteller and poet, inspired by Beatrix Potter and Roald Dahl.

Louise has always loved reading and uses the medium of storytelling to bring her ideas to life. She has created a series of magical, otherworldly ‘Garden Centre Monsters’ in ceramics, which she uses to teach children about the importance of recycling and other environmental themes.

My art is about trying to tell stories of the environment through monsters. My stories are aimed at children, everything is based on teaching children how things work and has an educational slant and is inspiring for them. I like working with toddlers and primary school children.
