Eleanor Kwei has been drawing since a young child. While working as staff illustrator at a Midtown book design firm, she was selected as the colorist for A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh story and poetry books, and went on to create line drawings in the style of Ernest H. Shepard (classic Pooh) for Dutton and Disney.


With a decade of experience rendering pastoral scenes in pen & ink, Eleanor extended the style and sensibility to illustrated estate maps, and to painting interior landscape murals for homes and establishments.


Samples of Eleanor's landscapes are on view at the Croton River Artisans Gallery, November 1 through 30th.
