Louise Barton


Louise was born in Rhodesia in 1960 and grew up roaming the scenic landscapes of her small home town. As a child, she was constantly exploring the outdoors, taking in the changing colours of the African flora and fauna, this is where her initial artistic flare began to blossom.

Louise has a true creative core, which was etched into a career when she moved to the Kwa-Zulu Natal area and started an antiques agency, restoring and bringing neglected pieces, back to life with new lustre and a creative twist. After the birth of her two daughters, she relocated to Johannesburg where she studied fine art with the University of South Africa and opened her first art gallery with long time mentors and well-known local SA Artists, Susan Orpen & Marion Townsend. For years following, she mentored under the renowned Richard Rennie, having several art studios and galleries with the beloved water-colourist.

Louise has had many art showcases around South Africa as well as having directed several art galleries from Franschoek to Haartebeesport, her original paintings can be seen on walls both locally and internationally.


After almost 3 decades of painting various styles and techniques, Louise returns to her love of florals and landscapes in modern / abstract mixed medium, oils & watercolours, with a unique & focused interest in colour, design & texture.
