About Eileen: Eileen Shaloum is a painter and mixed media artist who searches for and employs the whimsical in her subject matter. Her work evokes the joy and innocence one usually finds in children’s art. Being an art educator in the public schools on Long Island, New York, for over thirty years influenced much of her art making, an abstract process with a childlike sophistication. Her colors are often bold and her compositions alternate between ordered and loose, but always playful. She enjoys adding handmade and found papers, fabric, photographs, string and other found objects into her acrylic paint to give the surface a mysterious quality. Her present body of work has also been influenced by the writings of Italo Calvino in his book, “Invisible Cities.” The imaginary landscapes conjured by Calvino beckoned her to interpret them on canvas and paper which led to her unique, fantastical semi-landscape style which she calls “Dreamscapes.” She beckons viewers into these paintings where they can climb stairs and ladders to nowhere while winding their way through picture planes on shapes, textures and colors that guide their eyes through these spirited compositions. Eileen has been a painter for more than forty years. Her work is in several private collections in the United States and England. She exhibits widely throughout the United States, mostly in New York and Florida. An active exhibiting member of several Florida art organizations, Eileen has been showing her art all over Florida for over sixteen years.
