Louise Balaam is known for her dynamic landscapes representing the wilder areas of the British Isles - moorlands, marshes, and the rocky coastal areas of Cornwall, Pembrokeshire and the North-West Highlands of Scotland.  Her work is concerned with an emotional response to the elemental opposition of land and sky, and the quality of light in the landscape.

Balaam is a member of the NEAC and the RWA.  Her work is in many private collections in the UK and internationally, and has been shown in a number of open submission exhibitions, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Threadneedle Prize and the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize.
