Eileen Power’s path to becoming an artist was a circuitous one. She was born and raised in New York City to immigrant parents. Though art was not a part of her education, she always believed she was an artist. It simply wasn’t possible to be one full time before having an alternate career.
Eileen earned a BA in Economics and an MBA in Finance. After an interesting and challenging marketing career, she was finally able to leave the business environment to pursue art.
In 2016, Eileen moved from New York City to Woodstock, NY and studied printmaking and plein air painting under the guidance of Kate McGloughlin at the Woodstock School of Art.
In her home studio, she has been creating art made from everyday and discarded objects, animating them in unusual ways. Her sculptures have been exhibited at Kaatsbaan Cultural Park and in the 2022 exhibition “Shelter” curated by Melinda Stickney-Gibson for the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild.
In 2021, Eileen was the recipient of the Robert Angeloch Printmaking Award from the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum.
