Eileen Stockwell. Local artist. Trained at Newcastle.
Taught in Middlesbrough and Syracuse, New York.

During a long teaching career, I’ve provided illustrations for children’s books, language and academic text books. I’ve designed programmes, made posters and displays and I’ve won a few prizes, and exhibited work in local galleries.

Nowadays, I paint for pleasure and personal satisfaction, although commissions provide new challenges:-
The family dog; holiday homes; classic cars; Icelandic geyser; the Golden Gate bridge; religious icons; churches and wedding venues; local scenes for ex-patriates - to name but a few.
I love working with bright colours.
My style has evolved from purely representational to hard edged shapes and colour.
‘Your pictures cheer me up!’ someone said to me recently. That suits me!
