Louise Robertson | Artist Profile

Details of Louise Robertson


Louisegrew up in Yuendamu, west of Alice Springs with her grandma. She loved living there as a child and going on bush trips with her grandma: hearing stories about country and collecting bush tucker.When Louise was about 8years old, she moved to Alice Springsto live with her mother. She still lives in Alice Springs to this day, now with her husband and 2 children. Louise said that she came into the art room one day to see what her mother-in-law, Dulcie Sharpe and all the other ladies were doing. She decided she wanted to be part of it and so she starting coming every day. At first she was nervous, but then Dulcie taught her how to sew and now she loves it. She says she keeps trying new things and thinking about what to sew when she is at home. She wants to keep coming to the art room and getting better by making soft sculptures of people and animals. She wants people to feel happy when they look at them, like she feels happy when she makes them.
