In India and even in the West, Elephant has come to symbolise the God of Warriors. Elephant is the totem of the greatest of warriors, denoting royalty, inner strength and nobility. The myths involving Elephant have profoundly influenced humanity through history. The artist says “Being a new mother myself, this piece I have done of a baby elephant is tapping into the importance of family and how the female members keep the family together – much like elephants. Having a baby has taught me more I could ever imagine, and a baby elephant represents new life, yet ancient strength, which I feel sums up this experience of becoming a mother beautifully…

Louise McNaught completed her Fine Art Degree BSc (Hons) in 2012 at the University of Greenwich, and she has continued to work as a professional artist ever since, with international representation....   Louise‘s creations feature nature, animals, and the celestial realm in glorious, blazing neon hues, where the animals are God-like, Sublime and ethereal in their luminescence. McNaught's work is motivated by emotive and spiritual experiences which has manifested in a mixed-media approach. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man's destruction of nature - which flutters jewel-like in the balance. When focusing on endangered species the imagery often takes on a duality of not only what is happening to the animal itself, but also relfects how we feel psychologically about the effect the human race is having on these species.   By subverting traditional representation she hints at darker consequences, yet paradoxically giving animals an elevated status. Her animals are a medium for self-expression, as lack of conext and background suspends the creatures in an internal or even numinous space, where they become a metaphor for the human condition and psyche.   Just as we use highlighters to mark areas of importance, McNaught is doing this with fluorescent media. By drawing the viewers attention to the animals presence and energy, McNaught is hoping to share with the viewer the awe that the natural world inspires within her. "Her work presents a pleasant balance between traditional technique and new age spunk" The Quiet Lunch Magazine.
