Eileen Richardson's abstract-realist paintings and drawings speak a visual language of mediated perception. Many are explorations of ambiguous spaces, visually linking the refraction and dispersion of light to an uncertainty of figure and form. Others convey a heightened awareness of self in place and time as a moment of wonder triggered by light.

Eileen holds a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art and Visual Culture) with Distinction (Curtin University, Australia; including four Faculty Commendations and twice membership of the Vice-Chancellor's List of the top 1% of students) 2022, and a Certificate IV in Visual Arts (Great Southern Institute of Technology, Australia).
