Eileen Pleasure
Eileen Pleasure O’Brien (German-American, 20th-21st C.) Born Eileen Pleasure on the Autobahn in Germany, her early years were spent in Germany, Switzerland and France, where her father was stationed in the army. She recalls being intrigued by the painting process as a child, watching as her father, a self-taught photographer, hand painted his black and white photographs of Europe at the dining room table.

Eileen has been painting for over 30 years, during which time she also worked with the developmentally disabled, retiring as a Psychologist in 2013. Her graduate degree is in Psychology (MA), and included undergraduate art classes at Plattsburgh SUNY and SUNY Buffalo. Eileen paints in an abstract style, often juxtaposing large areas of contrasting colors and textures.

She has shown in Chicago, Illinois, Cleveland, Ohio, Ithaca, New York and in the Buffalo area. Her work is included in the Roswell Park Cancer Institute collection (Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center), The Hotel Henry collection and in several private collections. Having previously exhibited as Eileen Pleasure O’Brien, Eileen now uses only her maiden name.


Artist Statement:

“With a background in Psychology, my interests lie in the emotionality of life, including my own. My paintings generally serve as an abstract, visual diary. Titles may allude to the meaning of the piece, but they are often a personal code to be understood only by myself. My process includes laying the canvas directly on the floor and applying paint with my hands/rags/brushes while moving around the piece, resulting in work which emphasizes color, texture and the physical act of painting itself.”
