Louise Head


I am a gouache painter and a linocut printmaker. I like to create lush, fairytale scenes inhabited by women. I try to combine my queer, feminist eye with a childlike imagination. I am inspired by illustrators like Maya Hanisch, Fontini Tikkou, and Helena Perez Garcia. I identify as multiracial and lesbian. I also identify as a bookworm and dog-lover. I am trained as a couples and family therapist and sex educator whose professional work has focused on gender, sexuality, and social equity. I am also a sex educator certified by San Francisco Sex Information and have been featured in Harper's Bazaar, Salon, Bustle, Essence, and more for my writing on sexual and mental wellness.
