Louise Kleinsorge Williams
Louise Williams is a Bay Area artist and portrait photographer whose work celebrates the human condition with all its foibles, delights, and ironies. Her whimsical images are narrative collages, revealing our idiosyncrasies and aftachments. She draws on her own past experiences for inspiration, choosing animals as characters since their charm and humor abound. The images evolve from her imagination as she works. Rarely does she know what will unfold from the seed of an idea, which might be a character choice or a background. She weaves together material from a variety of sources to digitally compose her images. Creating these images has been a great source of joy for the artist who intends to engage and delight all viewers.
The title of this collection, It's Magic, refers not only to the magic of the creative process that the artist experiences as she works, but also to life itself, for so much of what we encounter, when we really pay attention, is sheer magic.
Williams draws from the following sources for her material: her own photographic archives, Rijkstudio, Canstock, Pixel Squid, and Midjourney.
williams' work has won numerous awards and been exhibited in the Bay Area and beyond at Toby's Art Gallery, Studio Channel Islands, The Chateau Gallery, and the Foto Nostrum Galleryin Barcelona.
She has a husband and two sons and lives on the edge of the San Francisco Bay with gulls and cormorants as neighbors as well as coots when they winter in the area.
