My name really is Eibhlin.
… I pronounce it the English way, sounding exactly like “Eileen.”
I’m a third generation artist, and I’m at my best when I live “out loud” and express myself creatively.
I grew up in Belmont, Massachusetts (USA), spending lots of time at Harvard and MIT, and at local libraries. Also, because my mother – a Mass. College of Art graduate – was active in the Boston arts scene, art galleries and museums felt like a second home.
In other words, I’m a geek and an artist. In fact, at age 14, a Boston art agency represented me as an illustrator. (I doubt that their clients had a clue how young I was.)
Since then, I’ve illustrated everything from student manuals (“How to Get Around MIT”) to yellow page advertisements in Salt Lake City, to programs for the earliest Star Trek conventions (organized by Bjo Trimble in Los Angeles), plus my own mailart, zines, and artistamps.
Currently, I’m revisiting my favorite, most exuberant art forms. I want to see how I can expand them to reach even more people.
For me, creativity – especially the visual arts and some theatre projects (sets, props, and costuming) – is like breathing.
It’s what energizes me, every day.
samples of my art
Most of these are from 2022 and 2023, and around 8″ x 10″. Many of my images come from magazines such as Town & Country (US), Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, National Geographic, and tourism brochures. (At times, I may pronounce that – deliberately – as Hyacinth Bucket did.)
drawings, sketches, and paintings
I seem to draw, sketch, and paint in spurts. Here are some of those works from recent years.
where else to find me
First, there’s my oldest art website, Aisling.net. In the mid-1990s, many women used pen names for privacy. Mine was Aisling D’Art.
You’ll find those topics and a LOT more at my Aisling.net website. Over 300 articles. Really. (Have I mentioned how chatty I am, when a topic interests me…? lol )
Socially, I’m at Facebook as Eileen Morey. That’s what childhood friends knew me as. (My maiden name was Morey, and yes, I’m related to the Moreys from around Cork city, Ireland.)
Also, I write books. I’m both traditionally published and an indie author. Yes, I’ve created coloring books, but I’ve also written fiction and nonfiction. Those are fun, and I write under different pen names, for privacy.
And then there are the YouTube channels, not ready for viewing yet. One will have a Disney theme, thanks to my mother’s influence when she was a Disney artist. Other channels will be related to art and lifestyle.
… Well, maybe. I may have to narrow my focus. Either that, or find a time machine that will give me more than 24 hours in a day. lol
To contact me, use my Contact form. I read all messages sent to me, and do my best to reply when I can. (Often, my life is pretty busy. Even hectic. But it’s always fun!)
