About the Artist ~ Eleanor Davin
As a young girl I was always drawing or painting. One day while looking for something in
our garage, I came across a wooden box filled with oil paints. How I never found those gems
before that day remains a mystery. The paints were old and used, but all those fabulous
colors looked wonderful to me. My father told me the paints belonged to my grandmother
and said I could have them. With the addition of a few more tubes of color, that was the
beginning of my career as an artist.
A painting brings the subject to life and painting is a way for me to interpret a small part of the beauty in this world. I enjoy
painting in several mediums including watercolor, pastel and oils. People often tell me they feel they are in my paintings or
standing right there. That is one of the best compliments an artist can receive. I have this fascination with the play of light on
subjects and scenes that carry you off into the distance as far as the eye can see. I love painting skies, water and places that
inspire and thank God every day for this gift.  Living in Wilmington, NC, has much to offer artists with its dramatic light, beautiful
coast and abundant subject material.

Included in my subjects you'll find portraits of people, animals, homes, seascapes and landscapes. I'm fortunate that people
enjoy my artwork which resides in the US and internationally. Portray your special person, pet, place or home in a one-of-a-kind
original painting as a keepsake to cherish forever. If you'd  like to commission a painting, please contact me at (
910) 795-7425
or send an email to:
eleanor@davinstudios.com. Thank you for visiting my website and please take a look at my guest book
where you'll find comments from previous clients!
Later in life, I decided to return to school to pursue graphic design. This led to some
wonderful experiences as an illustrator and graphic designer working for corporations
including Xerox, IBM, General Electric and as Art Director for a children's museum in North
Carolina. However, my passion remained with painting.  I painted every chance I could and
studied art throughout the years.
