ABOUT Eileen

I guess you could say it was a mid-life crisis that brought me back to creating art.  Like many people, I loved making art as a child, and then for a variety of reasons, I fell out of the habit.  I came back to it in the late 90s by taking watercolor courses at the Art League and No Va Community College in my adopted hometown of Alexandria, VA.  I now focus on mosaic arts and crafts, as well as mixed media, gel printing and various types of painting.

I'm happy to do commissions, so if there's something here you'd like personalized to your tastes, let me know.  Thanks for viewing!  Eileen M. O'Brien

Shows and Exhibits

My mosaics and mixed media pieces are currently on display in several places, including as one of the artists showcased in the bins at the Van Landingham Gallery (top floor, Studio 311) of the Torpedo Factory.  Also, I am in the resident artist at Palette 22, a wonderful restaurant in the Shirlington neighborhood of Arlinton, VA.  This means I work "shifts" at the restaurant, creating my art there and you can come watch me work and chat in between bites of their fabulous food. Another fun place to see my artwork in Snouts & Stouts (also in Arlington), a combination dog day care and bar! In addition, my artwork is often in the regular shows at Del Ray Artisans in Alexandria and Falls Church Arts in Falls Church.​​
