Eileen Goldenberg has been a working artist in the Tampa area for over thirty years. Her paintings and other works are widely collected here and elsewhere. Her paintings on canvas and board have been commissioned by individuals and organizations and have graced book and magazine covers. Eileen's functional art is painted in a style that goes beyond decorative painting into a more illustrative realm. Her vibrant, whimsical work often has a story to tell and is meant to invite you into a world of imagination and a positive, life-affirming point of view. Eileen has participated in many of Tampa's Community Art based projects and has been commissioned by Hillsborough County for several Public Art pieces. Eileen's signature piece for Art For Life-Jugglervein, in 1996 brought a record breaking $15,000.
Currently, Eileen's painting "The Sea of Mirth" can be seen at Channelside, as a featured artist in The Big Art Show. In January 2006, a collaboration with James B. Tokely, Poet Laureate for the City Of Tampa, was installed in downtown Tampa where it will hang for two years. This 60X40 foot canvas is called Leviathan and is the world's largest poem.
Eileen's first book, which she wrote and illustrated, "Pinkie McCloud and How She Saved Balooze" will be published by New Horizon Press in Spring 2008.
