       Louanne LaRoche is a documentarian at heart and has been a resident of the Lowcountry for over 40 years.  Her private studio is located on the May River near the historic town of Bluffton, SC.  Her vibrant paintings depict variety through subject and size. Friends have said that Louanne's paintings are an "eruption of her wonderful spirit that simply spills out onto the canvas."

     In addition, her interests focus on collecting Outsider art, American Illustrators, American Impressionists, regional,  African,  tribal,  and anonymous artwork. Her efforts as collector and curator of the work of Sam Doyle and other Southern folk artists have led to Louanne LaRoche being recognized internationally along with her own artwork.

      LaRoche has brought her own distinctive vision of the Lowcountry by combining the freedom of expression with the strength of representation. She stresses the importance of community and her role to observe and document the intimate connections that occur in everyday interactions.

Keep in Touch

One of the many aspects of painting that I enjoy is getting to know the people I meet along the way. Whether you are a collector or just curious about my collections, feel free to contact me. I would love to stay in touch.

“LaRoche's artwork reflects a significant sense of her  community and her response to these connections as they are being lost, displaced or diminished."
