Eileen Towata is a printmaker, living and working in Kailua, Hawai’i. Educated as a biologist, she moved to Hawai’i to pursue and complete a Ph.D. in Botany at the University of Hawai’i. In 2014 she reignited an early interest in printmaking that was first stoked by an inspiring high school art teacher. She resumed her training in art through local adult education classes in drawing and painting before transitioning to print and other art classes at several local community college campuses, as well as the Honolulu Museum of Art School. Most recently, she attended an intensive workshop on mokuhanga (Japanese woodblock). She has also studied with a well-known paper artist and learned to produce handmade paper – often incorporated into her work. Eileen now produces original prints through serigraph, relief, intaglio and monoprint processes. As a printmaker, she wants her work to bring a sense of calmness, whimsy, or curiosity to the observer and enjoys experimenting with techniques, substrates and color.
Eileen is a member of the Honolulu Printmakers, Honolulu Museum of Art, and a board member (education co-chair) of the Windward Artists Guild. Her work has been on display through Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce, Los Angeles Printmaking Society, Honolulu Printmakers, Honolulu Museum of Art School, Hawai’i Island Art Alliance, Windward Artists Guild, Windward Community College, and other organizations/venues, as well as appearing in local, domestic, and international private collections.
