Eileen has lived in Montreal Canada all her life, married, a mother of two daughters and 5 grandchildren. Her formal education in art began in the mid 70’s under the guidance of two renown Hungarian artists, Herman Heimlich and Leslie Schalk. Although she has been painting for over 30 years with notable artists she feels was self taught.
Never leaving the passion for art and painting, she simultaneously began “Creations Elin”, designing and hand painting children’s room décor, selling across Canada and the US until 2015.
Her work tends to be free and painterly with contrasts of color. She feels most comfortable when she is surrounded by her work. It fosters the opportunity to express her deepest and most vivid emotions. The outside world disappears! Painting helps keep her grounded. It enables her to refocus and adjust her perspective towards life’s ups and downs.
For her, painting should have an intimacy, a mystery and sensuality. At its best, her work also has an edge; something in it that takes a moment, a second look, an effort to comprehend. As with all art, what you pull from her paintings depends on your own experiences – but what a wonderful opportunity to explore emotions in the sometimes bold and sometimes subtle colors.
