ABOUT

Eileen's work relies heavily on a relationship with materials and process in particular paper and print.  Her current work develops themes by referencing photographic analogue processes and gestural mark-making.  Using alternative photography and printing techniques she continues to develop physical and meditative processes to capture a fleeting moment and illustrate a narrative about place.

She kindly agreed to be take part in our Creative Questions and Answers post; so I really hope you enjoy Eileen's answers below....
