Eloise lives in Virginia Beach with her husband, daughter, dachshunds and cat. She has been teaching art for over a decade in the Hampton Roads area, including teaching design at Tidewater Community College’s Visual Art Center. Her work is shown in galleries such as Lemon Tree in Cape Charles and at Southern Shores Gallery and Design in Virginia Beach, and is in TCC’s permanent collection. Home and connections are themes of her artwork . These with the layering of time, decay and transitions continue to thread through her work. Eloise uses oil & cold wax, acrylic, mixed media, encaustic and collage. She enjoys encaustic, collage, mixed media, acrylic and print-making with a gelatin plate. Recently, Eloise decided to let go of teaching as an adjunct to devote added time to her own art practice and other teaching. She also has a studio at One Eleven as of July 2021.
