About the Founder


Welcome to
Lucite By Louise

 


The Late "Louise May Maloney"

To all who knew her she was a kind, loving, gentile person.  Her family was her first love.  Her art came a close second.  In school she excelled in the arts. 

She married young, had children and raised them with all her love.  Those were very hard times.  The marriage ended and she continued to love, protect and provide for the children.   She opened a diner and kept the family fed.

As the children grew into adulthood, she met Harry and they couldn't have been a better match.  Louise wanted to see America.  They went to Florida, a welcome change from Elmira and Syracuse.

While holding down full time jobs, these two were exploring their artistic abilities.

Using bits of her husbands' acrylic scrap, Louise was learning how to carve.  She'd carve freehand, from the back, in reverse, so her picture would be face forward on the smooth front side. 

Thus in 1974 were the crude beginnings of Lucite By Louise.

 
The Current Artists


Harry Maloney

Harry and Louise were married 26 years before her passing.  Everything Louise knew about her art, she passed to her husband.  In the early years, he'd primarilly cut, sanded and polished pieces for her.  As Louise got better, she started to teach Harry to carve.  He'd take over her design, while she'd work on new designs.  Since her passing,  Harry has kept her art alive.  Being a "one man band", he hasn't been able to continue with all of  her designs.  Some projects have been side lined.

 


Yvonne Maloney

Three years after Louise's passing (while vacationing), Harry and I met.  Subsequently after a 2+ year "long distance courtship", we were married atop Pine Mountain in Pigeon Forge on May 4, 2004.  Harry has been skillfully teaching me the Art, since 2002.  At present I have mastered several of the designs and added a few that come from my  artistic background.
