Eileen is a jewelry artist and started her art career in 1965 at the Anvil School of Art in Pennsylvania. She worked primarily as a canvas artist.
In 1995 she became interested in metal art. She studied metalsmithing at a college level for 2 years, then subsequently studied under a number of prestigious metalsmiths including the well-known Tim McCreight. She was the first certified PMC instructor in Arizona.
Eileen now creates jewelry that is organic and textural, with a muted palate that is subtly feminine. Not only does she use silver and gold in her creations but also works with titanium and niobium. She gains inspiration from visiting museums and galleries and will also use organic material from her garden as a casting template.
Eileen’s jewelry is exciting and elegant with a touch of whimsy. There is a constant stream of new designs flowing from her studio.
