This is an etching by Eileen Sorg. Like all art this really should be seen in person. Her etchings have a sparkle to them that shine in the light and brighten the colors. We used four mats on this piece to match the books the owl is standing on. We used a jute linen mat for the top and middle. 15" x 15" $399

This is an etching by Eileen Sorg which is part of a series of 3. The pictures of these etchings do not do the art justice and should be seen in person. The colors are vibrant and the detail to the animals is amazing. She even added a green paint that sparkles in the light and can't be seen in the pictures. Framed with a linen and suede mat and a green/gray frame. $380

Eileen Sorg

 

Born in Seattle, Washington, Eileen Sorg still lives and works overlooking the bountiful Hood Canal. As with most Northwesterners, Eileen has a keen interest and respect for the natural landscape and its wild inhabitants. With her degree in Wildlife Science from the University of Washington and subsequent time spent studying birds and mammals as a biologist for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, she has now returned to art with a bit of the scientist still in tow.

Eileen enjoys exploring her subjects and seeking out the minutest details to express in her work. Her drawings have been likened to “photographs” but she is quick to point out that her pieces are less about detail and more about the subject’s essence and vitality. “With my current work I am seeking to capture the playful, sometimes mischievous side of my subjects, catching them in the act of behaving unexpectedly.”

Eileen’s primary medium is currently colored pencil, with ink, pastel, and watercolor applied for added depth. “Primarily, I am a draftsman rather than a painter. I am most comfortable with a pencil in my hand, languishing over all the tiny changes in tone and hue.” The pencil work is essential for breathing life into her subjects and creating softness.

Eileen is a Signature member of the Colored Pencil Society of America. Her work has been featured in The Artist’s Magazine, American Artist, American Artists – Drawing Magazine, and she is the author of three books on colored pencil, published by Walter Foster, which are available at most booksellers.
