Louise Leong is a California based printmaker and illustrator. She has exhibited her work internationally in addition to regularly in the Santa Cruz and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Her bold prints and illustrations are influenced by the humorous nuggets in the mundane landscapes and interactions people experience throughout their day. Through a filter of classic cartoon influences, she finds charm in the worlds we occupy while navigating the 9-5 work day; the humor and beauty of the strange relationships a cashier shares with her customers.
Her “why not” approach of mark-making has attracted audiences of all ages to her imagery. Those with an affinity for childhood mischief are rewarded with the tongue-in-cheek humor of Louise’s art.
Louise has also taught art workshops with Porter College at UCSC,Youth Now! in Watsonville, and with the Prison Arts Project at the Santa Cruz County Jail.
