Born in New York City in 1989, Louisa Rorschach fell in love with the visual arts at a young age. Although initially intent on becoming an art historian specializing in Austrian Expressionism, Louisa discovered a passion for printmaking late in her collegiate career and decided to create art rather than write about it. After completing a bachelor's degree in Studio Art from Colorado College, she returned to New York City to pursue a life as a professional artist. In the autumn of 2013, Louisa completed a residency at the Grünewald Guild in Leavenworth, WA, where she further developed her printmaking practice and began experimenting with textiles as a medium. Upon her return to New York in 2014, she became involved with the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, where she now works as a studio monitor. Aside from prints, current projects include new works in handmade paper, architectural photography, and a large-scale sewing installation.
