EILEEN MCDONOUGH’S MOSAICS ARE SHAPED BY HEART AND CULTURE
(3 min read)
Twenty years ago Eileen decided to abandon a corporate career path to answer the call to adventure. It led her to Lisbon, a city a city full of life, singular stories and most importantly vibrant street mosaics that immediately awoke her love and interest for this ancient art.
Her adventure continued with the discovery of antique blue and white tiles shards called azulejos near a construction site. Thus started a new passion and eventually a new career. Over the years Eileen exhibited in Portugal and the USA and her pieces have been sold all over the world.
In 2015 she founded Lisbon Mosaic Studio where she now runs workshops to spread the gospel according to mosaics.
Even after all these years, when her husband senses her slowing down as they walk by a construction site, he’ll gently nudge her to “keep on walking.” So she keeps on walking, paving her way with her delightful creations.
