In 1993, Dear returned to the United Kingdom for the birth of her daughter, who features in many of Louise's works. She attended University College Chichester and graduated in 1998 with a vivacious passion for the arts and her emerging distinctive style . Her works have been shown in museums, the Royal Academy, and in exhibitions in England, United States and Australia. Dear lives with her daughter, Lama-Sea Dear, in Totnes, Devon.
