Louise brings a fresh and playful quality to her movement practice, drawing from her own acting experience to the every day. She is a generous and caring collaborator, one who supports and encourages directors and designers in their work, helping them to create living, breathing and dynamic worlds.

She was introduced to puppetry in 2011 when performing in War Horse in London's West End. She puppeteered 'Baby Joey' for over a year and went on to be part of the team performing a vignette from the show at the NT Live 50th Birthday celebrations.
She is a trained intimacy coordinator and works regularly for TV and film.
Louise completed her second MA at Guildhall in 2021 investigating Movement Performance Teaching at PGCert level.
