Louis is a Philadelphia, PA based artist and musician. In 1978 he was awarded a full scholarship to The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where he studied figure drawing with Marshall Glasier. In 1990, he made the decision to concentrate solely on painting watercolor landscapes and did so until 2006. Through that sixteen year period, his paintings became more abstract and these ideas set the precedent for his current work. In 1994, at the Wayne Art Center, he won the Myrtle Jarvis Watercolor Award for his large watercolor of Sylvester’s Cove, Maine, and in 2007, at The Main Line Center for the Arts, he received the Canson Paper Prize for the mixed media work entitled “Memories of ’54”. His paintings and commissions are included in many private collections.
