Artist Tricia Eisen
As a child, I dreamed of being an artist. I would sketch my own hands sometimes, just to see how close I could get to making them look real.
During my high school years, I painted about three paintings, and fell in love the idea of becoming an artist. However, soon after graduation, I met and married my husband Chris Eisen. I stopped painting for many years to raise our two beautiful and amazing sons, Steve and Chris, who are the light of my life. I am very proud to be their mother. They gave me three beautiful grandchildren, and wives whom I love dearly. My family and faith are the most important parts of my live, and I am so thankful for all of them. They support me with my art work and encourage me daily. My sister Kim says she is my biggest fan, and I think she just might be.
In April of this year, I decided I was going to devote a few hours every week to my painting and learning as much as I can to improve my work. My work was chosen to be in the Brush with Success at the Art Gallery of Viera 2012, the Fall Festival in Down Town Melbourne, FL. and the First Friday in the park at Eau Gallie, FL. My work is on display in the Indian River Gallery in Cocoa Village Fl., and in the New York Artist Shop in St. Cloud, FL.
My medium is oils, and my subjects are many. I love all of nature, and I strive to make my subjects as real looking as I can get them. God has blessed me in so many ways, of which I am very thankful. Every day that I get to paint is like Christmas to me. It’s like getting to unwrap my presents on Christmas morning to see what each painting will reveal. I only hope the people who see my work will love it as much as I have enjoyed creating it for them.
