The Artist Says:


"Nature inspires me so that I seek to capture the  beauty and feeling of a moment. My paintings are meant to draw you in to that moment and bring you joy."



Collectors Say:


 
After glimpsing Van Gogh's Path, I knew it was a must have.
When I actually saw the painting I was captivated by its beauty.
The sun lightly touches the yellow and red leaves on the tree lined path. Your eye is drawn along to a delicately lit opening. The entire painting conveys a sense of peace and tranquility.
Eileen is an accomplished artist who has a keen eye for the beauty of nature and is also able to express a whimsical touch to her paintings of various animals.
Monet's Chickens is one of my favorites

Biography


Living on a horse farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, I am never at a loss for images and inspiration. Watching how the light changes with the seasons and trying to capture its beauty. My paintings attempt to recreate the mood, whether a  drizzly day in France, foggy sunrise on the mountain,  the  cocky strutting of a rooster or the curiosity of  a pig.  The grace of people and animals enchants me so that  I must pick up my pastels and paint. I mostly paint everyday scenes, which keep me grounded.
Ever since I could hold a crayon, I have loved to draw.  A few years ago i discovered pastels and have been hooked ever since.  The vibrancy of the colors and ability to layer them is magical and not for the faint of heart.  I consider myself part impressionist, part expressionist and 100% Eileen.
