Eileen Keane

Artist and Writer based in Kildare, Ireland

I am currently based in Co. Kildare, dividing my time between writing and art, I find there are never enough hours in the day!

Sometimes I incorporate text into my artwork, while my writing is often described as very visual, so in that sense, I am always trying to find a path between the two mediums.


I have displayed my art in countless exhibitions and group shows and have had my writing honoured in many awards and publications.


Send me a message with any queries.
