Hi, I am Eileen. Thanks for stopping by. I’ve been painting in watercolor for close to 10 years. This past year my focus has been on painting the ocean. Prints of my seascapes are available on watercolor paper or canvas, in many sizes, at shop.eileenmckenna.com.
I grew up just blocks from the beach and now live a 10 minute car ride away. It is truly my favorite place. I often wondered, “How can you capture the ocean in paint?” After participating in three separate month long challenges, I saw how focusing on a single theme or medium can lead to real progress in ideas or skills or both. So when I completed the last challenge I decided to focus January (2017) on figuring out how to paint the ocean. January led to February and on and on, and I’m still painting the ocean! I’ve progressed in so many areas, but am finding new areas to strive for. The ocean is an amazing subject because it changes so much.
I also love turning my sketchbook illustrations into repeating patterns for fabric and gift wrap. I’ve worked as a graphic designer for over 20 years. Currently I specializing in web design and email and social media marketing. You see samples of my work at www.eileenmckenna.com.
If you would like more information or would like to hire me for a project, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
