Biography


Eugenie is a spirited artist who believes art is not only fun and inspiring, but is as necessary to life as breathing. As she says, “Without art, in all its forms, wouldn’t we hunger for it? Art seems to be a uniquely human endeavor. (Yes, you can train an elephant to use a brush, but would he try it without training?) We decorate ourselves, our dwellings, our streets and communities. We write our thoughts down to remember them or to share them with others. We invent stories, plays, music, as well as sculpture and two dimensional works. We are compelled to make. Even our appliances and cars are judged by their design, as much as their usefulness. Good design—like a pleasing painting—makes us feel good. We are geared for art. Sure we don’t need art in the same way that we need food, clothing, and shelter, but we are hard-wired for beauty and creating. Art experienced blesses our souls, while artists communicate their souls through their art.”
 Eugenie grew up in the foothills of North Carolina which was advantageous to beautiful mountain landscapes, yet only a day’s drive to the seashore—two locations that infuse her work. She doesn’t remember a time she didn’t draw or paint. She earned a BA in Art from Mars Hill College, and spent her junior year studying art history and studio art at Richmond College in London, England. After college she worked in graphic design and pre-press jobs for both screen-process and off-set printing companies. She is an oil-painter and watercolorist. She also dabbles in calligraphy and book arts.
 
Eugenie's motto, Boosting Zest for Life Through Art, stems from her belief that life is enhanced when we surround ourselves with art.
