Artwork and Calligraphy Designs by Eileen Slifer Sunstrom

Greetings!   Thank you for your interest in my work.   I am an Alabama artist that offers a wide range of artistic products and services.  I work in watercolor, acrylic and pastel.  Included in my offerings are fine art portraits, live event paintings at weddings and other occasions, murals, calligraphy, bridal bouquet preservation, caricatures and much more!  Below are images/links that will help you get started exploring my site.   I have been in business since 1989 and have thousands of satisfied customers across the United States.  Prior to 2012 I was a lifelong resident of Delaware; that is why I continue to offer my services in that region.   I still travel to the area and have many established business connections; many orders are easily handled through shipping.   I look forward to talking with you about any project you have in mind.   Contact Me

Recently I did a painting called "Night Sky" on a re-purposed cabinet door.    It is going to be part of the "Embracing the Arts" show at the Carnegie Visual Arts Center in Decatur, AL.   You can see this item also listed on Etsy as a sample for similar work.

I recently had my first mural job since moving to Alabama!   I painted a Baptistry Mural of the Jordan River with a dove descending for King's Memorial United Methodist Church in Decatur, AL.    It took me about a week to do and they were very pleased, and I was as well!

The No Fences Cowboy Church held a special rodeo event called "Day of the Cowboy" at the Sheriff's Posse Grounds in Hartselle, Alabama on October 19, 2013.   The event was to raise money for Cancer Awareness and was well-attended for the first year!    I set up a booth and did some caricature drawing.   There were other vendors selling western themed items and in the evening the rodeo began.    They had food throughout the day cooked on the Chuck Wagon and other events such as wild cow milking and horse shoe-ing.    It was a fun family event!

We took a 10 day trip to Delaware ending on Labor Day Weekend.    It was great to see our kids and my in-laws.

Back now in Alabama and just finished the portrait on the right.   Click Here to see the reference photo.

This summer has been quite busy with many portrait projects and two live event paintings at weddings!   These 5 pictures show some of my recent work.  The two bottom paintings were from a Pakistani wedding in New Jersey, and a wedding at Five Rivers near Mobile, Alabama.

My boys came for a visit from Delaware this past weekend and it was great to see them.   We went to Cathedral Caverns and took a trip into Nashville.

Already gearing up with projects for the holiday season!

On this past Saturday we travelled to Oneonta, AL for the annual June Fling.   Here are some pictures from the day!

We were unfortunate that day in that the fuel pump on our van died and we had to get towed to a local mechanic.   Thankfully a friend from church drove an hour and a half to pick us up and we were able to return the next day to pick up the repaired vehicle!

Over the past couple weeks I've been working on a five-person family portrait in watercolor!    I took my time and thoroughly enjoyed working on it, posting progress of it in stages on my Facebook Page.    I am always learning new techniques with each new commission.    To see the larger view of this work please Click Here Watercolor Family Portrait
