Welcome to EileeGeorge.com – where you can experience some of what Eilee does:
Hi, I’m Eilee George, and I’m an artist, musician and writer working near Denver, Colorado.
Musically, I sing and play ukulele and occasionally other instruments, focusing on styles of the first half of the 20th century, as well as on my own originals inspired by that time. In visual arts, I work in various media, especially acrylics on canvas; and sometimes on Masonite, wood, Plexiglas, and other surfaces. I also do artwork on white, black, or colored papers using Prismacolor pencils, graphite, pastels, and pen. My writing ranges from poetry to short stories to, of course, songs. And I have a lot of blog posts scattered throughout the site.
My artwork and even my songwriting are inspired in part by my photography, and in part by dreams, transcendent emotions, and psychological phenomena. In music these manifest through choice of chord progression, vocal modulation and, obviously, the lyrics. In artwork, these are expressed through symbolism, abstraction, and/or focus on appropriate elements and principles of design to achieve the desired effect. In both disciplines I try to work very quickly and intuitively to ensure that the work is infused with the immediate essence of the moment expressed. Varied picking, strumming and special effects are applied in my music to emphasize the meaning of the lyrics. Playful use of color and dramatic light figure strongly in my art aesthetic, where I prefer to work large, but I also create medium and smaller works.
I also accept custom commissions for songs and artworks, so feel free to contact me with your needs & ideas; I readily brainstorm and accommodate. You can contact me directly via my contact page for questions, commissions and purchases. I plan to deligate a PCI-compliant third-party online market site through which purchases will be possible in the future; until then, please contact me directly via my contact form. I am in the research stage and wading through an overwhelming abundance of options, so if you are an artist/vendor yourself and have any ringing endorsements for a particular one, please contact me here and tell me what it is and why you like it versus others; I will appreciate any input that isn’t a blatant spammy sales pitch. If I choose your suggestion I may provide you with a free 8×10 print (only one winner; if multiple people suggested the winning site I will do a drawing among them for the winner, so please include adequate contact info).
The evolution of my music and my artwork will be represented on this site as each develops. To learn more about current events, please visit MY BLOG, and relevant areas of the site such as the calendar and show pages.
To view and go through art lessons in the Elements and Principles of Design and how that applies to drawing and composition, please visit this initial post, and progress through others as they follow in the links at the bottom of each lesson:
Additional art lessons can be found in that category of my blog here. There will be more, as I am still developing the series.
My more recent artwork can be viewed here.
You can read about my musical pursuits here.
If you live anywhere and want to buy any of the available originals or prints, or to commission custom artwork, or if you live in the Denver/Boulder area and are interested in, for yourself or a family member or friend, tailored private art or ukulele lessons (technique – not theory), or wish to schedule a house concert or celebratory event performance, you can contact me here. I also teach reasonably-priced beginner lessons in Spanish and Russian language, as well as being an ESL tutor and a Photoshop boss.
I have to say it’s been a lot of fun to learn web design in the process of beginning to market my art and music! I’ve designed several other sites now; they’re clean, attractive, functional and informative. Web design, graphics for print and web, animated GIF art, logos, copywriting and other marketing and branding services are available through our family business, SmARTful Solutions by George, the site for which you can visit by clicking its logo at the top of this page, or just by clicking here.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy looking through my art site!
♥ – Eilee
ATTENTION: Some artwork galleries are temporarily down; my hosting provider deleted my highest-rating gallery plugin for security reasons and did NOT alert me to the update; I’m now having to install a suitable replacement, configure it, and reload all my images, and rebuild all my SEO, settings, descriptions, jump links and internal links throughout the site that my host broke and didn’t save for me by doing this. Sorry…and it may take weeks to fix it all. (And now we return to our regularly scheduled introduction. Please bear with me as many of the gallery links will be broken and either display incorrectly or direct you to a cheeky 404 Page-Not-Found bunch of nonsense. I’ll fix it soon-ish; I’ll use these links again.) Sorry! 🙁
UPDATE: For now the Painting gallery and the new Photography gallery ARE up! Making progress! Music area hasn’t been impacted negatively at this point, and blog is fine except some links that connect to galleries that are still down.
