The art work of Louise McNaught buts animals on a heavenly pedestal. Stunningly illustrated on top of celestial maps, her work is refreshingly bold and imaginatively whimsical. Louise McNaught states, "In my world the animals are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their luminescence." It appears she particularly believes this of winged creatures from birds to bees.

Based in London, England, Louise McNaught uses neon or metallic paint to better capture the animals inner glow. By doing so, she endeavors to show how precious all living creatures are. The delicate style of her paintings also suggest the fragile relationship between man and nature. Louise McNaught hopes to strengthen that relationship, writing, "I want to draw the viewers attention to the animals presence and energy, so they feel connected to it."
