Louise Schroeder grew up in a large family on a farm near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada. Throughut her 20’s she worked as an orthopedic nurse and during that time she avoided the long cold winters by traveling to warmer climes throughout the world. Her travels brought unforgettable adventures and inspired her to share these experiences through her art. With no formal training, she learned her trade through books and countless hours of practice. Louise has shown her work in numerous art shows in Canada and the United States; created stage designs, murals, posters and illustrated a textbook for Saskatchewan schools. She was the visual creator and illustrator for the award winning children’s book series THE BLUES GO BIRDING, and more recently, illustrator for GONE CUCKOO.
Louise is mother to three wonderful daughters who are now away at college. She is currently enjoying country living with her husband near Austin, Texas.
