Eileen M Foley
I began to pursue painting seriously when I moved to Maine in 2002.
I participated in my first painting workshop on Monhegan Island and was immediately captivated by the light and natural beauty that surrounded me.
Although primarily a landscape painter, I also enjoy capturing people “mid-stride”. Each painting is my attempt to capture the feeling of a random day in Maine and the specific light and atmosphere of that day. I work in oils and generally prefer to paint large canvases, as I like to feel that I am right in the middle of the scene.
Biddeford Pool, Cape Porpoise, and the Kennebunks have provided limitless inspiration and are the focus of the majority of my work.
Visitors are welcome to visit my studio by appointment.
