Eileen beckons viewers into these paintings where they can climb stairs and ladders to nowhere while winding their way through picture planes on shapes, textures and colors that guide their eyes through these spirited compositions.



“On Painted Stairs” by Eileen Shaloum 




Eileen Shaloum is a painter and mixed media artist who searches for and employs the whimsical in her subject matter. Her work evokes the joy and innocence one usually finds in children’s art. Being an art educator in the public schools on Long Island, New York, for over thirty years influenced much of her art making, an abstract process with a childlike sophistication. Her colors are often bold and her compositions alternate between ordered and loose, but always playful. She enjoys adding handmade and found papers, fabric, photographs, string and other found objects into her acrylic paint to give the surface a mysterious quality.






“Feeling The Blues” by Eileen Shaloum




Her present body of work has also been influenced by the writings of Italo Calvino in his book, “Invisible Cities.”The imaginary landscapes conjured by Calvino beckoned her to interpret them on canvas and paper which led to her unique, fantastical semi-landscape style which she calls “Dreamscapes.” 


Eileen has been a painter for more than forty years. Her work is in several private collections in the United States and England. She exhibits widely throughout the United States, mostly in New York and Florida. An active exhibiting member of several Florida art organizations, Eileen has been showing her art all over Florida for over sixteen years.






“Eudoxia” by Eileen Shaloum




After retiring in 2006 Eileen and her husband, Al, bought a home in Delray Beach where she splits her time between Florida and Long Beach, NY. Both places are stimulating artistically and offer many opportunities to show, exhibit, sell, and participate in arts organizations. Making and developing her art is her primary focus, which has become her full-time occupation. She received her B.A. in Art Education and her M.A. in Art History from Hofstra University, Long Island, New York. Being an art educator in the public schools of Long Island from 1971-2006 was a rewarding career that inspired her own art making.



During her career teaching art, she gave professional development workshops to other art teachers at NYSATA conferences and locally. She also gave workshops to other artists interested in learning new techniques in using mixed media with their painting. During that time, she continued to exhibit her own work and ran several art businesses from her home studio. Some of these businesses were: designing children’s clothing, creating one-of-a-kind art furniture, and for 12 years, Portrait Sign-In Books where she painted, on commission, portraits for parties, engagements, weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, etc. 



Eileen has exhibited in galleries and museums, warehouses and libraries both in group and one person shows in New York and Florida during the past four decades. She has won many awards and is in several private collections all over the country.
