Louisse Bosschieter

Born in Holland Louisse found her love for art in her teenage years in Amsterdam where school students were encouraged to buy yearly passes to art galleries. Her favourite was the Rijks Museum with old masters, including Rembrandt and Frans Hals.

 

Despite her love of art Louisse did not study painting but went on to become a nurse. Married with three children , Louisse and her husband decided to immigrate to Australia in 1981. Because she didn’t know anyone Louisse took up china painting to meet other people after seeing a demonstration in Ringwood. After 2 years she also commenced lessons with Rosemary du Plessis, Lorraine McLeod and Betty Wood. She has exhibited her work in many agricultural shows around Melbourne, her work winning her many major awards.
