Born in the countryside of Hampshire in a area famed for its natural beauty and its naturalists, Eileen Coxon's early surroundings resulted in a lifelong love of the natural world. Eileen trained in Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and now lives and works in Suffolk. She has exhibited widely in Norfolk and Suffolk and occasionally in London and Wales.
'My work is a personal and subjective response to my experience of nature. It is a slow and contemplative process which eventually makes its own demands and often results in a degree of abstraction. I am constantly searching for that duality of surprise and recognition when (sometimes) I find something I didn't quite know I was looking for.'
