Eilis Crean

About
Eilis Crean works primarily in drawing and painting. References to time form undercurrents in much of her work - cyclical and paused, geological and momentary, lost and seized, contemplative and purchased. She is based in Carrollton, near Atlanta, Georgia, and divides her studio time between Ireland and the USA. She is Professor of Art at University of West Georgia, Carrollton, GA.
