Eileen Power • Artist Biography
Eileen Power’s paintings are about space, energy, and the paint. While her work is greatly influenced by “place”, reflecting the light, color and atmosphere where they are made, the soul of the work is internal and drawn from personal memories and relationships and the feelings generated by such. While the color sets the mood the shapes tell the story.
Recent work has been a celebration of women and the exploration between femininity and strength. A self-taught artist, Eileen’s formal education in business management did little to prepare her for this satisfying career. Yet, all she is and all she’s done finds its way into her work. Eileen has had the good fortune to work with a number of master teachers including Ms. Chery Baird of Atlanta and Steven Aimone of Asheville, NC and Monhegan Island, ME.
Eileen currently works from her home studio in Atlanta. She has won numerous awards in juried exhibitions in the Southeast and her work hangs in corporate and private collections.
