Louise Charles-Saarikoski is a full time artist specializing in painting animals in oils. She especially enjoys depicting the expression and behavior of her subjects.
She takes commissions for animal portraits and has collectors of her paintings all over the world.
In addition to portraits, she paints cattle in landscapes, favoring the rarer breeds such as belted Galloway or Highland cattle. When not painting for clients she will be found outdoors gathering reference material by sketching and photographing wildlife and cattle for future paintings.
Originally from the UK Louise has lived and worked in Helsinki for over 12 years.
