Eileen has always loved art and had always dreamed of painting. Ever since she started drawing with charcoal, she remembered seeing all the beautiful paintings the other students had drawn. Color had a way of speaking to her, and a way of expressing more life-like objects. Being able to hold the brush, and control every stroke with a different amount of paint, different amounts of water, was such a different experience for her and she immediately fell in love with it. After her first painting, Eileen knew that she had to continue drawing.The aspect of color really intrigued her. Starting off with oil pastel, then watercolor, charcoal, and now using oil paint, Eileen has had a lot of experience and interest for art. She feels that with different types of media, she can express more of her ideas through different forms on what once was, a blank canvas.
