Eileen Dorsey

Capturing both local landscapes and fantasy scenes in vibrant hues, Eileen Dorsey paints meditative forests of light and color. Dorsey expresses the energy of the places she visits through impressionistic or expressionistic marks. Emphasizing our connection to nature as a healing and rejuvenating experience, Dorsey’s paintings transcend reality to achieve an emotional impact.

Dorsey studied fine art at Kent State University under Charles Basham, who left a lasting impression on her work, culminating in a joint exhibition at the Massillon Museum of Art. She won Cleveland Scene’s Best Artist in 2020 and 2018, and Cleveland Magazine’s Best Artist in 2020 and 2019. She earned awards in juried exhibitions including Akron Art Prize, Brecksville Center for the Arts, and National Arts Program. Her work has been exhibited at the Butler Institute of Art and the Riffe Gallery and is included the collections of ARTneo, University Hospitals, CARTA, and the Judson Foundation.
