Louise Fenne

Artist Statement

"I work quite intuitively, letting the process itself decide what happens on the canvas, using the model, birds or other props as well as thoughts on color combinations as a starting point. The result expresses a search for harmony and inner peace in the way we relate to ourselves, other living beings and our natural surroundings."


Louise Camille Fenne was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1972. She attended the Florence Academy of Art in Italy where she studied traditional drawing and painting techniques. Fenne continues to work mostly in oil. For some years now her figurative work has revolved around women and birds as subject matter, often with ribbons and abstract landscapes incorporated into the composition.  

Louise’s work has been acquired by private collectors and shown in exhibitions since 2003. Her exhibitions include a solo show in 2018 with Eleanor Ettinger Gallery, New York and numerous 2-person and group exhibitions. Today she exhibits mostly in the United States and is represented by Ann Long Fine Art, Charleston, South Carolina and Principle Gallery in Alexandria, Virginia. Ms. Fenne currently resides in Svendborg, Denmark.
