Louisa Foley is a Leeds based illustrator behind the project Are We Nearly Bare yet. The project aims to subvert the male gaze and reclaim ownership of the 'Nude’
She highlights the diversity, beauty and even humour of the 'Nude' using illustration, colour and her subjects poses. In doing so she aims to lead the viewer away from typical judgements whilst liberating women and non binary people.
Louisa develops and drives Are We Nearly Bare Yet forward using many mixed media techniques combining digital illustration, paint, ceramics and collage. You can find her working away at her home studio in Leeds, West Yorkshire with her little cockapoo Queenie.
