“My goal as a painter is not just to render images of places or events, but to capture the spirit and intensity of that one magic moment with my brushes. I am especially drawn to the people and places of Cape Ann and coastal Maine and I am profoundly influenced by some of the master artists who live and work here now and also from those who came before us. While living and painting in Maine, I was inspired by the incredible beauty of the rocky coast. After moving to Cape Ann in 2010, I discovered the quality of light, natural beauty, and architecture that are all unique to the area also offered boundless inspiration. Specializing in land and seascapes, my preferred medium is oil on Gessobord or canvas.” – Eileen Patten Oliver
