January Artist of the Month

The Walworth County Arts Council Artist of the month for January is Eileen Streu. Eileen Streu, a retired non-profit executive, recently moved from Illinois to Wisconsin’s Lake Country. She has spent the last 25 years dabbling in stained glass art. Eileen is now spending much more time in her art, both in stained and fused glass. Eileen is a member of Geneva Lake Art Foundation and displays at the Gallery in Lake Geneva.

As a young girl, she admired stained glass windows in historical homes around where she grew up. The way the light through these windows brought life into a home and the way color bounced off the walls always drew her to wanting to one day create a light show of her own. Her motto is part of her business card:

Live Life in Full Color……
