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 at a fantastic store called Made in ALX in North Old Town Alexandria. The shop is a collective, featuring the work of 40 artists and makers and I  would love to have you visit me while I’m working there.  Beginning on March 8, you can see my installation at this year's Artomatic -- where I'll be in Room 6040 at 2100 M Street, NW in DC.  If you haven't been to Artomatic, you simply have to visit this fabulous event where more than 1,000 artists will be taking over this office building from March 8-April 28.  See Artomatic.org for all the details. Also for February and March, I will also be a part of the artists showcased in the bins at the Van Landingham Gallery (top floor, Studio 311) of the Torpedo Factory.  In addition, my artwork is often in the regular shows at Del Ray Artisans in Alexandria and Falls Church Arts in Falls Church.​​
