"The exploration of the relationship between man and nature is the soul of my art. The unknown and the unexplained intrigues me. I attempt this search with a great sense of adventure and curiosity. My subject matter is not always known to me until I put my pigments to paper, building with eclectic materials and water soluble pigments into a design form that I find exciting. I consider myself a constructivist, employing a nonrepresentational style of art to combine my subject into abstract forms through a series of catastrophes. I think this creative approach helps to express my deep emotions."

​Eileen Olson was born in Brooklyn, NY.  While growing up she studied at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and  studied at Corcoran School of Art in her later years. She is a former co-owner of Spectrum Gallery in Washington, DC. Eileen recently returned from a month long artist-in-residency in Brittany ,France She had an art exhibition in Dinan, France with selection of one of her paintings by the board members of Les Amis de le Grande Vigne to be placed in their permanent collection.. 

Her most recent works of exploration demonstrates her sensitive use of colors that open into forms of softened geometry that rule the surface. Her creations are characterized by brave applications of color in both painterly and geometric compositions in pastel, oils and water media. For more than two decades, Eileen has been engaged in an ongoing experiment with painting. She constantly seeks to modify her approach, resisting the comfort of tendency and maintaining the freshness of an unchartered territory

 Olson currently resides in Bethany Beach, DE.  She’s a member of the Rehoboth Art League. She was an R.N. and  practiced critical care nursing for over 35 years. She switched careers once her three daughters flew the nest. Her work can be found in both private and corporate collections in the US and abroad.
