Born in Cape town, South Africa in 1968 Louise attended the Ontario College of Art from 1987 to 1992. She is a cofounder of 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art and has been actively co-organizing events in Toronto since 1992. Louise has presented her work throughout Canada, Chicago, Poland and Turkey. During this time she has been producing performance art works where various notions of beauty and the attempt to slow time are manifested by way of metaphors, symbols and physical actions. These works are predominantly concerned with the politics of identity especially as it intersects with issues of gender and race. Other concerns include the cultural conventions of spectatorship and the links between expanded emotional/psychological states and physical experience.
