Louesa Roebuck studied printmaking at RISD and moved to California during the El Nino of 1997/98 and began working at Chez Panisse, having little to no idea of the power of the transformative Community she’d entered. She continued her education of Californian culture and beauty working closely with Erica Tanov, and then went on to open August, a seminal and before-its-time fashion, art, and Community hub. August was an early proponent of the intersection of luxury apparel and socially responsible textile practices. She lost the business during the worldwide economic Crash of 2008/09, and returned to her lifelong love of foraged and gleaned floral work, which has been her recent medium of choice, followed closely by monotypes. Louesa considers all of California her home, and happily divides her time between the Bay Area and Los Angeles, and currently lives in Ojai. She’s created floral installations for Vivienne Westwood, John Baldesarri, Todd Selby, Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, Rintaro, and Carolyn Murphy for Vogue and House Beautiful. Her floral work has been featured in a number of national and international magazines and media, including Vogue, C Magazine, Edible Selby, Remodelista, Bare Journal, Sunset, Martha Stewart Living, the Los Angeles Times.
