Los Angeles based artist, Anne-Louise Ewen’s inventive body of work includes paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, and books. She grew up in a small town on the Mississippi River in a region of South Louisiana known equally for its antebellum architecture and for its toxic refineries. In this time of deep unrest in the United States, she strives more than ever to create honest, personal expressions of freedom and beauty.
“If I could have a superpower it would be to give everyone a home. A safe place that beautifully reflects and amplifies the best of who they are and hope to become. Where they can unguardedly be themselves. Lay down to sleep in peace. Wake up feeling in love with the world. As it is, I offer my paintings and the universe that they create.”
