Louise Lockhart

Louise Lockhart is from Yorkshire and has her studio in a renovated cotton mill where she also lives with her young family. Since she was a child she has made picture books (usually about cats). She takes inspiration from everyday things around her that others may overlook.

She loves to spend her time working on children’s books alongside creating fun and bright designs for clients such as M&S and Mini Boden. She creates her work by cutting out shapes from paper and scans them into the computer to add colour and texture. She loves the colours of mid-century textiles and the tenderness and humour you find in folk art. She started her shop The Printed Peanut in 2012 and is known for her line of delightfully bright illustrated products.
