Welcome to Emyback Art!

My name is Eileen Backman, and I am a local artist in Bloomington, Illinois. I am also a Fine Art America artist selling my images as prints and product in an online, as well as a part owner of one of our many local art galleries — Main Gallery 404 — where I sell original works and prints.


I have lots of original art available for direct sale, and am adding to my collection regularly. Please visit my Art Portfolio page to see selection of what I have to offer. I continue to update my portfolio of both traditional and digital art, so this page will always be a work in progress.


Want to Commission a Painting or Digital Art? Please check out my Commissions Page or contact me directly to discuss commission requests. Although I love all of my local art requests, I can do commissioned pieces for anyone in the U.S., and any subject matter from pets to homes to buildings to abstract. And since I do not rely on my art income to survive, my prices are very reasonable. I really just love how personal and magical a commissioned piece can be. I work in acrylic, ink, gouache, watercolor, pencil and colored pencil. Commissioned art makes such a wonderful gift for a family member or friend … or yourself!


Although I set out to be a dedicated blogger … that hasn’t panned out completely! But I do have a few blog posts up on my Blog Page about commissions, my process or other thoughts about art.


Visit the Fine Art America Page to see what’s new in my collection of galleries available for print and products through Fine Art America. Be sure to check out the examples of framed art, clothing, and products!


Thank you for taking time for viewing my art. I am compelled to create and love the art making process . . . but what I love more is the ability to bring other people joy through my art. So whether you are looking to buy, or just looking, I hope my art made your day a little brighter.
