In her presentation, Eileen will emphasize the effectiveness of quick thumbnail sketches, reducing her subject down to three values in order to emphasize form and how light plays across the landscape. Eileen remains mindful of the need for a strong abstract composition and interesting subject matter, seeking to inspire viewers with an appreciation for nature’s gifts.

Eileen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Albertus Magnus College and her Masters degree in Fine Arts from New York Academy of Art. She has taught at the Yale Center for British Art, Sacred Heart University, Gateway Community College, Holderness Academy, Lyme Art Association, and numerous workshops. Eileen is a member of the Salmagundi Art Club, Oil Painters of America, Lyme Art Association, New Haven Paint & Clay Club, Guilford Art Association, Madison Art Society, and The Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society.

Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout New England and New York. She has received numerous awards, and her work has been cited in many publications. Her paintings can be found in public and corporate collections including Eastern Connecticut State University, the Municipal Art Collection of the City of New Haven, Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, Pfizer, Inc., Sprint Corporation and the U.S. State Department, Washington D.C.
