As a working fine artist, Lou has a reputation for originality and a style all his own that he continues to follow and explore. He has a strong design sensibility that lends itself to an amazing range of contemporary product applications. His designs have a balanced modern aesthetic that, when paired with products create a fresh exciting direction.
