Louise Cook was born in 1943 in Fir Ridge, Saskatchewan. Inspired by Saskatchewan’s landscape, Louise has been painting for over 30 years. For nearly 40 years, she has shared her passion for the prairies in her paintings. Whether it is the vast open fields or rugged northern forests of Saskatchewan, Louise is compelled to explore each of these areas in her work. Louise creates colourful, moving landscapes in oil and watercolour. Her perspective as a painter is that of a city dweller attempting to keep in tune with her rural roots. She is truly one of Saskatchewan’s finest landscape painters.
