Lois Eakin - www.loiseakin.com

Artist Biography:

Lois Eakin is a fine art oil painter. After earning undergraduate and graduate degrees, she developed a successful Graphic Design career. At the same time, she pursued her lifelong love of painting, with many paintings in private collections. While active in local and regional arts organizations, Lois studied at Chicago's School of the Art Institute and Palette and Chisel.

Lois now a full-time artist, paints objects that interest her for their uniqueness, not necessarily an acknowledged beauty. She gives considerable thought to her still life compositions.Using the technique of chiaroscuro, Lois creates a mood in her paintings by building up the paint in the highlights against transparent paint in the shadows. She carefully sculpts her paintings by paying attention to color, value and edges. 

As an artist, she admires and is inspired by the paintings of Dutch masters Rembrandt and Vermeer, 18th century French painter Chardin, and also contemporary still life painters, David Leffel and Michael Van Zeyl. She prefers the style of realism, believing it gives the viewer an opportunity to look not once, but many times at the same painting, each time seeing something new.


Trekell Statement:

Lois uses all sizes of the Trekell hog bristle long filbert brushes because of the way the brushes hold the paint and allow for a smooth application to either primed panels or linen. Their shape allows for broad, as well as, fine strokes. They hold their shape through many clean ups. Regular use of the brush restorer keeps the brushes like new.
