Known as Micky, Aboriginal artist, basket weaver and homewares artist.
I inherit my Aboriginality from my mother who is a Kokatha woman.
Stylistically I use traditional dotting in my artwork and incorporate symbols and colours learnt from my grandmother and mother.
My work comprises of acrylics on canvas, wood burning on Ironbark timber, basket weaving using natural fibres and raffia.
Some of my work comprises of commission pieces and special customer orders. I also teach basket weaving and frequently run classes and workshops.
At the heart of Eileen’s art practise is a love of nature. Through her paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations, Eileen hopes to focus people’s attention on the natural environment to show it’s beauty and fragility in the face of climate change and the loss of open and green space.
Eileen also organises art classes for children and teenagers and casual art groups for adults on Tuesdays.
