Lois Full Time Professional


Loïs is a prolific artist and illustrator in cut-paper, acrylics and mixed media, based at her studio in Ipswich. From intricate scalpel paper-cuts to speed-painting, sketching, digital art, life-drawing, and mixed-media sculpture, her artwork is characterised by a balance between precision and free-flowing energy. She often creates designs for public art trails in cities across the United Kingdom. She joined MyArtBrief in February 2017 and has successfully completed a large number of commissions through MyArtBrief. She is always happy to discuss individual needs for a commission. Speed-Painting Lois is best known as a speed-painter with a big brush, sweeping strokes, and bold colours including iridescent, shimmering and metallic paints. Her choice of subject matter varies widely to include portraits, wildlife, landscapes, townscapes, seascapes, nightscapes, and still-life. She often works on unconventional canvases, making creative use of the original to contribute to a new artwork in a 'metamorphosis' or 'graffiti' technique. She welcomes an audience while she works and frequently performs live demonstrations of her techniques at art clubs, art shops, galleries and other venues, engaging passers-by in conversation while she paints. Paper-cutting Lois's paper-cut designs are a synthesis of swift, energetic sketches and painstakingly precise cuts of a surgical scalpel blade. She frequently presents talks on the history and diversity of paper-cutting traditions from around the world, and specialises in illustrations, creative cartography, and personalised gift commissions (especially for paper anniversaries). Her paper-cuts have been published in books, magazines and journals internationally. Loïs can design and create a unique personalised papercut gift for your loved one, to commemorate a wedding, birthday, christening, or special occasion. A delicate cut-paper design is the perfect gift for a first (i.e. paper) wedding anniversary. Loïs can incorporate names, dates, or a meaningful quotation, woven into the design. Sculpture Lois creates dramatic sculptures in mixed media, inspired by themes of historic drama, myth and legend, balancing exquisitely detailed hand-carved features with sweeping movement, often incorporating numerous unexpected 'found items'.

I asked Lois to create a sculpture in memory of my late Father in law. Lois has been a great communicator, she listened and interpreted my ideas so well ,providing sketches of her thoughts, and was so patient when I changed my mind or asked for small changes. I was thrilled with finished sculpture I Would readily recommend her and her work.

Lois did an amazing job bringing my vision to life. It was a fun, exciting and rewarding experience to work with her on my brief to paint my boyfriend in the world of his favorite video game. I can't recommend her enough!

I can’t speak highly enough of Lois’ artwork and attitude. Not only was she polite and enthusiastic, she offered her views on different ways to produce the art, which were invaluable as I am far from an art expert. She communicated at all points throughout the process, which was great too. I’d recommend her 100% and hopefully have the chance to work with her again in the future.

Lois was great to work with - made sure she really knew what I wanted, suggested similar styles and really described what she was going to do before she started, then provided progress photos. It made the whole process very reassuring and the final painting was excellent and exactly what we'd hoped for. She was also really accommodating when sorting out the shipping too - all in all a great experience, I'd definitely recommend and commission again.

It was a joy to work with Lois. The painting I commissioned was a special birthday gift for my husband and he was absolutely delighted with it. Lois kept me up to date throughout and was extremely helpful and enthusiastic. This was my first time commissioning an artwork and Lois made it a wonderful and enjoyable experience.

Lois was amazing from start to finish. I set out to create a piece of art and I didn’t really know how to make it happen. At every step Lois was there to provide advice and support and together we were able to create something that farmer exceeded my expectations. The communication was brilliant throughout. I was working out of the country and often on a different time zoneS. Lois was always so flexible and responsive. The end product far exceeded my expectations. I’m giving it as a present tomorrow but shown it to a few family members and they were blown away. I can’t recommend Lois highly enough. It was such a pleasure working with her. I’m a little sad it is over! 😃

Lois was absolutely amazing! From communicating exactly what I wanted and being able to understand with no worries at all what I was trying to convey. She was so patient and a joy to work with! Nothing I asked for was too much trouble - and I had so many tweaks and bits and pieces to add in and changes in composition. I felt like we worked together really well and that made me have so much confidence in choosing to have a piece commissioned - as it was my first time doing anything like this. The process was quick and easy and I trusted Lois completely. Also she far exceeded my expectations in the final piece and also had the final work delivered well before my deadline which I was so thankful for! I would have no hesitation using Lois again and can't recommend her highly enough!

I have always prided myself on giving unique presents and decided to commission a piece of art for my Daughter's 18th. I was immediately interested in Lois based on her artwork, submitting a flexible brief with themes that might work. Lois responded quickly and as if reading my mind gave a provisional sketch that would eventually be manifest in a paper cut design incorporating the themes. Lois easily interpreted and translated my ideas, which was remarkable given the short/loose brief submitted. Lois gave an extremely reasonable quote (particularly for her talents) and was kind enough to work to my budget. From beginning to the end, Lois maintained regular correspondence that included image updates, clarifying my wants to get every detail right. The final Artwork is stunning. Lois is unbelievably skilled, extremely professional, but also a truly lovely person, producing exactly what I had hoped. It is truly perfect! Lois made this a truly magical Journey/experience.

What can I say other than thank you. I can't recommend Lois and the Team at MyArtBrief highly enough. Jennifer couldn't have been more professional, and Lois went out of her way to ensure that the final picture was exactly what I wanted. She kept me upto date with developments, was happy to discuss ideas and thoughts, shared photos every step of the way and managing my expectation re timelines. The resulting picture is truly wonderful and a fitting golden anniversary present for my parents. Am now just looking for another excuse to submit another brief.

Lois took our brief and ran with it with such commitment – we felt like our brief was in perfectly capable hands and Lois came up with fantastic suggestions. Lois was passionate about the concept and went over and above what was asked of her – she provided regular updates, seeking approval through photographs and video footage. We felt the project was left in safe and capable hands. The final result is a sublime piece of art with ample thought and commitment having gone into it.
