Louisa has worked in youth arts and museum education for 12 years. She believes arts education is a vehicle to encourage empathy and social bridging, and to foster deep, interpersonal relationships with each other and the world. She believes each of us have something to teach and something to learn from each other. Louisa holds a BFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and keeps her fine art practice in her back pocket. She lives in Portland with her husband and two young daughters.
