My name is Eileen and I have been painting since high school. I like to take everyday items from life and make them into artwork, like sheep from the pasture, or a clothespin from the laundry room. The nature of my art reflects my Illustration background. I enjoy vibrant tones of hot pinks, turquoises, and a spectrum of colors that reflect the spirit of my personality. Sometimes I incorporate these splashes of colors peaking through the background of my paintings.
My love of colors and passion for foods brings me into the kitchen with a sense of whimsy and fun: pineapple, an artichoke, apples, and pears often find their way into my paintings. Art should sometimes have a sense of whimsy about it, so I’ll stick a bird sitting on top of an animal, next to a truck, or throw in a guitar for my love of music.
I hope you enjoy looking at my art and I would love to hear from you, and would gladly receive suggestions about any object of desire that you would like to see in a painting or note card design.
