Louise is a poster girl

Art lover Louise Potter has a dream hobby – buying paintings by old masters with other people’s money… And it’s led to her getting her own portrait hung in a London Gallery.

Louise, owner of Buxton’s No 6 Tea Rooms, is a member of the Art Fund, a charity which raises money to buy art vital to the nation’s heritage in danger of being sold abroad.

The charity used her photograph in a giant poster (left) in the Royal Academy to promote its work with the slogan: “Louise Potter. Serious collector of teapots, cake recipes and Monets.”
