Life Force is a stunning sequence of over 30 abstract artworks, each taking their inspiration from the poetry of former UK poet laureate Ted Hughes (1930-1998) and the evocative setting of the Yorkshire moors.

With quotations from Hughes's work included alongside the pieces they provoked, moving commentary by Louise detailing their background and inclusive of preliminary sketches and photography, this wonderfully produced hardback documents a journey through both literature and the landscape.
