Louise Leong is a California based printmaker and illustrator. She has exhibited her work internationally in addition to regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Her bold prints and illustrations are influenced by the humorous nuggets in the mundane landscapes and interactions people experience throughout their day. Through a filter of influence from classic cartoons, she finds charm in the worlds we occupy while navigating the 9-5 work day; the humor and beauty of the strange relationships a cashier shares with her customers.
Her “why not” approach of mark-making has attracted audiences of all ages to her imagery. Those with an affinity for childhood mischief are rewarded with the tongue-in-cheek humor of Louise’s art.
She was a member of the Printmakers at the Tannery (PATT) at the Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz, CA from 2012-2019. In 2018 she joined the Little Giant Collective to open a new printmaking cooperative space in downtown Santa Cruz. The LGC space opened on February 1, 2019.
