Ilene Meyer

Ilene Meyer



"Ilene Meyer was born in Seattle, Washington in 1940. She is a self-taught artist, who was inspired by her mother's drawings as a child. She began showing her surreal oil paintings in Washington and California in the 1970's. She paints in the Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso style, but with more life and feeling. She makes her paints come alive with her use of light, color, shadows and "all the details".

Ilene has had major gallery shows in the United States and overseas. There is a documentary film chronicling her long career as an artist. She is a celebrity artist to the Japanese after living and working there for several years. Her prints, cards and over-sized book are all best sellers. Ilene is back living in the United States and in January and February 2007, had her first United States show in 10 years in Tucson, Arizona which was a welcoming home event and one of the biggest shows Tucson has ever had."
