Eileen Powers is an artist, photographer, graphic designer, and illustrator. She first learned to use the camera in high school on her mom’s 35-millimeter Argus. Today, she uses a combination of film and digital to create her work. In 2000, Eileen opened Javatime Design on Nantucket and has helped hundreds of clients with print projects, logos, and other graphic design projects. When need arose, she picked up the camera and began creating the images for graphic design projects. This love of photography grew, and now as an accomplished photographer, Eileen creates portraits, books, prints, and photography for all needs. She sells prints as Cape Coastal Photography on Etsy.
Eileen has studied with such notable photographers as Constantine Manos, Greg Miller, John Paul Caponigro, Stella Johnson, Amy Arbus and Terry Abrams. She attended the Maine Media Workshops, MassArt, Syracuse University, UMass Dartmouth and Caponigro Studios in Cushing, Maine. Eileen studied advertising and branding with Steve Cosmopulos, Willie Baronet, and John Waters. She holds a B.A. in creative studies, an M.A. in advertising design, and a graduate certificate in interactive media. She is currently applying to MFA programs and will be teaching more workshops in the future.
Eileen is interested in the beauty and abstraction of ordinary places and daily life. While she shoots formal portraits, she has a particular interest in environmental portraiture and documentary photography. Her ongoing projects are: Campers of Sandy Neck; Dennis Port: Sea of Change; Local Strangers; Carnival in Provincetown; and Matrix 9.
