Biography


   
In 2000, as I prepared to sell my parents’ home, I found my kindergarten report card in the attic. My teacher’s comment, "Eileen loves art," triggered memories of my favorite activity, finger painting. I vividly recall the sensory experience of the colors, the texture and even the smell of the paint. And most of all I recall my joy when my Mom hung my paintings on the kitchen wall—there was no greater compliment!
 
Shortly after I rediscovered this childhood passion, I bought my first set of paints and started down this long winding road of learning to convey with paint the beauty I see all around me --- and I've been painting ever since!
 
I hope you enjoy my work. And don’t hesitate to reach out if you would like to hang one of my paintings on your wall :)
