Hi, I’m Eileen. Over five years ago I made a resolution to be more creative and started this blog. I was in search of my muse, medium, and personal style. I found all three, and found so much joy through creating. Here’s some of the projects that I’m working on:
Painting the ocean. For the last few years I’ve focused on capturing the ocean in watercolor. I’ve expanded this and sometimes work in acrylics. Prints and originals of my seascapes are available at shop.eileenmckenna.com. See my completed Fire Island map in my Etsy shop.
Illustrated Map Making. Currently I’m halfway through #the100dayproject. My theme is illustrated map making. Follow my progress on Instagram @eileenmckenna.
Digital Downloads. Last year I opened an Etsy shop where I offer downloads of my work. It’s so much fun creating clipart, invitation borders, painting tutorials and more, for others to use in their designs. I also offer personalized prints, including family trees, and am so touched when someone orders one as a special gift. Visit my Etsy shop here.
Designing fabric prints. I love turning my sketchbook illustrations into repeating patterns for fabric which are available for sale on Spoonflower.
My Creative Collection newsletter. I thoroughly enjoy collecting links on inspiring art, craft, places, people, and more! It’s especially fun to connect with the artist I feature every issue. The newsletter comes out every two weeks. Sign up here.
Graphic Design. I’ve worked as a graphic designer for over 20 years. While my career started in print, I currently specialize in web design and email and social media marketing. Learn more at www.eileenmckenna.com.
More about me. I live with my husband and three teenagers not far from the beach in New York.
Let’s work together! I’m especially interested in illustration projects and collaborations. I’m currently looking for a collaboration with a sewing blogger. If you would like more information or would like to hire me for a project, please email me at email@example.com.
