Eileen Schnog

Eileen, A jewelry artist, started her art career in 1965 at the Anvil School of Art in Pennsylvania. She worked primarily as a canvas artist.

In 1995 she became interested in metal art. She studied metalsmithing at a college level for 2 years, then subsequently studied under a number of prestigious metalsmiths including the well-known Tim McCreight. She was the first certified PMC instructor in Arizona.

Eileen now creates jewelry that is organic and textural, with a muted palate that is subtly feminine. Not only does she use silver and gold in her creations but also works with titanium and niobium. She gains inspiration from visiting museums and galleries and will also use organic material from her garden as a casting template.

Eileen’s jewelry is exciting and elegant with a touch of whimsy. There is a constant stream of new designs flowing from her studio.

Hidden In The Hills Tour

René and Eileen are members of the Sonoran Arts League which holds a yearly arts event called Hidden In The Hills. The mission of the Hidden In The Hills Artist Studio Tour is to provide an opportunity for the public to visit the workspaces of dedicated artists in the Sonoran Foothills, to learn about the artist's methodology and process and to purchase directly from them in a friendly, engaging atmosphere that showcases quality art.

The multi-artist event is usually held in late November, giving you a chance to do some early Christmas shopping.

Stay tuned for dates in 2021!
