Louise Hope

Louise Hope joined the studio in 1999, as it was evolving from treatment program to art group. Her crisp and colorful illustrations of rats and cats shimmer with literary wit and an economy of design.

This many-faceted writer, researcher and illustrator became co-director of the Art for Life studio in 2004. She handles the day-to-day routine, leaving Jan free to concen­trate on artistic questions.

More of her work can be seen on her own site.
