Eileen Guernsey-Brown Biography
Eileen Guernsey Brown grew up in Southern California, at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. Her passion for art and the outdoors began at a young age, always encouraged by her family and teachers. Moving to Salt Lake City in 1976, Eileen received a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Utah and went to work as a freelance graphic designer for ten years before returning to the “U” for a B.A. in Education. After a career of 27 years as an educator in public schools, Eileen retired in 2016 to return to her first passion: painting. The Impressionists – especially the early California and French masters -- have greatly influenced her work. Expressing the beauty of nature and capturing the light is one of the primary goals of impressionism, and something Eileen aspires to achieve in her work. Not to copy nature exactly however, as the landscape painter John F. Carlson wrote: “Too much reality in a picture is always a disappointment to the imaginative soul.” Eileen expresses with paint and bold brush strokes her emotional reaction to what she sees in nature, rather than a literal description. Many of her colorful, impressionistic oil paintings are painted on locations throughout Utah.
