Lou Boyce

Lou is a mixed-media artist from Bristol. Her work, which ranges from drawing and painting to graphic design and printmaking, reflects her love for bold design and striking colour and she is heavily influenced by the great local street art and music scenes that Bristol is famous for. She is also inspired by Bristol’s diverse mix of cultures and the sights and sounds of urban life and is a self-confessed doodler.

Lou enjoys working with a variety of mediums. She loves experimenting and learning new techniques and has recently developed a style that has enabled her to combine some of the design characteristics of screen printing, stencil spray painting, collage and sketching in order to digitally produce some new limited edition fine art giclee prints. She has also started to paint some small-scale commissioned murals and hopes to develop this skill further.

Lou designed and painted a Shaun the Sheep (King of the Carnival/Queen Square) for the 2015 ‘Shaun in the City’ sculpture trail and painted a Gromit (Marshall the Paw Patrol fire pup/Chew Valley Lakes) for the 2019 ‘Gromit Unleashed 2’ trail.

Lou recently became a citizen of Barbados (her husband’s place of birth) and loves to seek inspiration from there whenever she gets the opportunity to visit.
