À propos

Eileen is a native Newfoundlander who lives and paints in New Perlican on the beautiful Baccalieu Trail. Having grown up in historic Heart's Content, she was enamoured with the many Victorian houses, huge churches, wharves, stages, boats and harbour. She is the daughter of a fisherman and boat builder whose ancestry goes back generations in the fishing industry. She was steeped in outport history and folklore growing up. Upon retiring from banking, most of which was in St. John's, she and her husband William settled in New Perlican where she found the desire to paint anything folklore related, particularly the Fishing stages in the harbour. New Perlican has a sheltered harbour with 20 colorful stages (currently); Matthews began painting their likeness on slate. She now does varied and custom work on glass, slate, rock, wood & canvas. Although mostly self- taught, she is constantly taking classes with various Newfoundland artists and on-line. She is inspired by the colorful surroundings in the province; her canvases tend to be outport scenes. She sells at various stores on the Avalon, in Trinity and from her Facebook page - NERRL Hand Painted Designs. She is an Ambassador and Member of NLOWE, Legendary Coasts, Craft Council NL, Citizen of Craft, Board member Baccalieu Trail Heritage Corp.; Chairperson, Heritage New Perlican; Member of Mizzen Heritage Society, Heart's Content and many other volunteer activities in her area.
In 2017, she received the Federal Government Award for “Making a difference” from Hon. Judy Foote. M.P.
