Artist Statement of Tricia Eisen

I'm an oil artist, Inspired by the beauty that is in nature.  My work is a reflection of what I see and how I feel about my surroundings, and the beauty of God's creations.  My goal as an artist is to paint as close to realism as I possible can, and to bring joy to those who see my work.

 

Tricia Eisen's Bio:

 

I have lived most of my life in the Eau Gallie area of Florida.  In 1966, I graduated from high school, and soon after, met and married my husband, Chris. We have two amazing sons and 4 beautiful grandchildren.  They are all the stars in my heaven.  

 

My love of painting started when I was in high school. One of our neighbors was an artist and I always enjoyed talking with her.  She was a good artist, and I told her that I would love to learn how to paint.  She gave me some oil paints, a few brushes, and a canvas.  Then she told me to paint something I love.  I did and my love of painting has never stopped.  

 

It is amazing to see the things that God has given us to enjoy, and the beauty that surrounds us in nature.  I only paint what moves me emotionally.  Learning is ongoing with me, and I try to paint for a few hours every day.

 

My work can be seen at the Art Gallery of Viera, in the Avenues of Viera, Florida,  The New York Artist's Shop, in St. Cloud, Florida, Art in Public Places with Brevard Cultural Alliance in Viera, Florida, Fine Art America, Pinterest, and numerous homes and businesses in the US, Canada, South America, etc.  

 

I only hope you enjoy my work as much as I have enjoyed creating it for you. I am celebrating one of the happiest times in my life, other than being a wife and mom that is.    

 

Thank you for your support, and be blessed.
