artGuide art news blog featured editorial for this month is floral art! Based out of Raleigh, North Carolina, Eileen Hendren shares with artGuide her creative process for her floral pieces.

Eileen is a graduate of Duke University with a business concentration and has a Masters of Architecture from NCSU.

Eileen loves working in oils. She is passionate about the history of oil painting, the way it fills your senses, “the way it smells, the feel and the ingredients.” What inspires Eileen is the incredible richness of art history worldwide, its evolution over time, and the passion and sense of self that artists invest in their work. And the knowledge that she will never reach the end of her artistic journey.

Eileen loves to travel and has painted scenes from all over the world, or as she puts it, “all places and anywhere stories happen.” She is thrilled to be a part of the Raleigh art community, its energy and the sense that something special is emerging and growing.
