Thank you to everyone for visiting the studio over the last couple of weeks. I will be open until Dec 17th and then closed, except by appointment, till just after Christmas.
Derbyshire Life is doing an editorial on "Visit Buxton" in the January 2013 edition so I have put in a little advert and will be open again on Wed to Sun 10am till 5pm for the month of January. I am sorry but I will then go back to open by appointment only until further notice.
All this exhibition activity has been good for me and I have had a number of good sales. With particular thanks to Smithyfold Studios in Glossop ( and more recently Bakewell Art and Design.(
Also Webbs Fine Art Gallery, London is featuring my prints on the front page of the web site.
I have been madly recreating more images to replace those sold and have just been over to resupply Bakewell Art and Design.

There has been a bit of a rush on my White Woods series, both the plain mixed paper woodland and also those painted in the soft winter light colours.

A lasting impression

Louise Jannetta

Christmas Open Art Studio with Guest Actor and Photographer, Bill Ward


Louise is opening the doors of her Studio for a one month Christmas Exhibition, running from the 17th of November to the 16th December.

Louise is quickly gaining a reputation for her large textured oil paintings of trees. These paintings capture light in their structure and colour. The paintings are best viewed in natural light when the light changes with the sun or the clouds, the texture and depth create their own shadows which move with the changing light.
Louise is collecting together all her major works from the galleries that represent her in the area to show in this Christmas exhibition.
She will also be exhibiting her limited edition collagraphs prints, (Similar to the etching process only the plates are much more vulnerable and so will only print an edition run of up to 25 prints). These start a very reasonable £25.00.

Guest Artist

Louise is delighted to be hosting the work of actor, Bill Ward,  and to extend an invite to her customers to view Bill Wards beautiful time lapse photographs.

Bill Ward is an actor and photographer. He is best known for playing bad boy, Charlie Stubbs, in Coronation Street.  To view his photographs see his web site,

The Studio will be open T
uesday to Sunday 10am till 5pm 17th November to 16th December.
We hope that these opening times will afford all customers ample opportunity to visit at leisure and at their own convenience.

There will be refreshments available.

It has been a very busy summer with all the art fairs that take place whilst the weather is good. There is however still a lot happening with the run up to Christmas
I am taking part in a number of events; please see my events listing, with a Christmas Open Studio Exhibition at my Studio in Buxton. I always really enjoy my Christmas Open Studio events as it is a lovely chance to catch up with all the customers that have supported me throughout the past year.  Everyone is more than welcome and will be greeted with tea/coffee and cakes. I will be open from the 17th of November to the 16th December, Tuesday to Sunday 10am till 5pm.
I am going to gather as much art work as I can from the various galleries that represent me in the area to make a large and comprehensive show.

The Studio

We have just finished the Buy Art Fair in Manchester, where I was hosted by Webbs Fine Art Gallery from London. It was hard work but very exciting and really good to be in the thick of it all in Manchester. I stood with David Farren who is a fantastic painter of London and Manchester street scenes and Bill Ward who is an actor and photographer. Bill played the bad boy Charlie Stubbs in Coronation Street and takes beautiful time lapse photographs.

Update on May 22nd 2012

It’s been a busy start to the year, catching up with work for this year’s exhibitions.
I have completed four new, large, textured oil paintings. These are two of the new paintings.

The other two have streams running through the woods. The Derbyshire hills trickle with loads of little streams that are beer coloured but very clear so you see all the rocks and pebbles beneath the surface.

All these paintings rely heavily on texture to create the illusion of depth and to play with the light both within the painting and across it.


I have produced a number of collagraphs and kept some small and therefore affordable. I will have some of these on show at the Derbyshire Open Arts Event.
And I have also developed a range of textured paper paintings, still on the theme of trees, but using the different textures in paper to enhance the tonal values of the paintings. Many of these are left white, as the different shades of white in all the different papers creates a subtle picture that relies on tones and shadows.
