Welcome, I’m so glad you came to visit my home on the internet. My name is Mara Louvain and I’m an artist based in North East England on the beautiful Durham Heritage Coast. I work with various processes from 19th century photographic techniques through to the latest digital. However, I love working with old historical processes, using my hands to create the images with my favourites being Cyanotypes and Lumens. These processes produce beautiful 2D prints but sometimes I create things out of them such as handbound books and jewellery. There is something extra special about an item or artwork made by hand.
You can buy my art in person at events (see the upcoming events listed at the bottom of the page) or here on my website via my online shop.
