Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. ,Eileen studied at the Brooklyn Museum School of Art and Corcoran School of Art. She is a partner at Gallery One in Ocean View, DE.and a former co-owner of Spectrum Gallery in Washington, DC.
Always pushing the envelope, Olson’s strengths are in color and form, able to distill the essence of nature into her paintings. She has a sensitive and personal style of painting expressing her emotions in an imaginative and beautiful way.
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.
