Inspired by the Irish countryside
Eileen creates one-off contemporary pieces of artwork that portray the beauty of the Irish Landscape. “Trees are the focus of my work whether they are Fairy Trees or just fleeting glances of the beautiful Irish countryside." Eileen incorporates different fabrics into her artwork including Cotton, Linen, and Irish tweeds to name but a few.
Her thread is her brush which she uses to create her pieces with her sewing machine.
Eileen says..."When I start a piece of work I have an idea in my head of what it will look like. Once I start sewing, the fabric and thread take on a life of their own. It evolves and directs me to where it wants to go. I am under the command of the piece from then on."
