Artist. Student. Teacher. Entrepreneur. Above all other definitions, LouAnne Barrett has always had the sense that she was meant to be creative. As a girl, she found joy in the solitude of a self-designed studio in the attic of her parents’ home.

From early art classes at Toledo Art Museum to obtaining her Master’s Degree in Integratedclose-fall-color Arts, her focus has always been the passion and joy of her creative nature. Today, she not only teaches art, but continues as a student of composition and design, always working to refine her own techniques to capture color, value and light. 

LouAnne Barrett’s current project opens June 30th at Art League of Hilton Head Gallery. “Close to Home” reveals her captivation with the beauty of the Lowcountry landscape. She is inspired on a daily basis by trees within a small radius of her home, whose grace and strength seem to be redefined in every new season. The sensual and sinuous light and shadows in their limbs demands her attention and requires her presence at the canvas. Lou Anne chooses to paint what might easily go unnoticed. Will her work inspire you to examine and celebrate the beauty in the everyday?
