Biography


Trained as a figurative painter/printmaker, Louise Sackett approaches all her work from a painter’s point of view. Light and composition take center stage. Her preferred style is impressionist realism, with the punctuation of personal statements with the brush, pencil or stick.

Most of Louise’s work has to do with places visited, people she has known, or the things that surround her daily existence. Her current preferred media are: oils, pastel and some acrylic multimedia. Louise was born in Massachusetts and attended the Worcester Art Museum School. While living in California, she earned a BA in graphic communication (emphasis printmaking) from San Diego State University and a Master of Science, Instructional Technology from National University in San Diego. Louise then worked as a digital artist for more than 25 years, creating training for the Navy. She has increased her abilities via workshops from such well-known artists as; David Leffel, Dianna Ponting, Sally Strand, Cathey Cadieux, Phil Starke, Greg LaRock, and many others. Louise teaches art via private arrangement and an annual pastel workshop held in her Wind Canyon Studio. She is a member of the Tucson Pastel Society, Tucson Plein Air Society, New Mexico Plein Air Painters, New Mexico Pastel Society, Black Range Painters, OPS(Outdoor Painters Society), and International Plein Air Painters Society (IPAP).
