During the pandemic, Eileen repurposed old canvas to create new works. “This is pandemic art,” she explained. “I tore old canvases, sewed them back together, and painted over them. I melted beeswax candles on my kitchen stove and painted it onto the canvas, often collaging cut pieces of metal screen I had in my studio onto the canvas. Depending on the piece, I went back in with oil paint or pastels to add subtle touches of color.“
