Originally from a tiny rural village in Scotland, surrounded by glorious countryside, Louise 'Lou' Baskerville relocated to the urban metropolis of Singapore with her husband and their miniature schnauzer, Ralph. Having combined her love of dogs with her work as a dog groomer, Lou decided to embrace the change in location with a change in career and began studying Graphic Design with the Interactive Design Institute (University of Hertfordshire). Now – 2018 – in her fourth and final year, she has loved (nearly!) every minute of her studies, and has rediscovered a love of illustration with a new passion for typography, colour theory and all things grid-like! She enjoys exploring mixed media by combining hand drawn work using copics, microns, gouache with digital, with travel throughout much of South East Asia providing much of Lou's inspiration. She recently finished writing and illustrating her first children’s picture book, featuring Ralph who has a huge personality! She loves walks on the beach, movies, all things Japanese and New York City where, one day, she hopes to be based.
