About the Artist
Artist Eileen Balsom Matthews paints in New Perlican, Baccalieu Coastal Drive, NL. My artwork is all original, no projectors, I paint from my own sketches on canvas, glass, wood and slate.
Retired from banking, I began painting in 2016. I do varied and custom work on canvas, glass, slate, rock & wood. Mostly self-taught. I am inspired by “outport” NL and the “icons” of NL. All Glassware is “hand painted”.
Artwork, glassware, etc. is sold from this website, FB or IG; packaged well, shipping extra and glassware shipping is at your own risk. My artwork is also available in many areas or by booking a private appointment at my house. Contact me for custom work @ firstname.lastname@example.org
