Eileen Scott

Eileen Scott

Artist    Writer     Poet    Philosopher
1929 – 2015

Eileen Scott had an amazing career. In the male dominated world of business of the 1960′s she fought her way up through the ranks of senior executives at ICI, then the largest chemical company on earth.

Like her husband Michael, Eileen had overlapping careers in biology, business strategy, and the arts.

Among her prolific creative output Eileen has authored several books and she was an artist having produced hundreds of paintings. The book ‘Being Visual’  is a small snapshot of work spanning some twenty years.


Eileen passed away on December 25 2015… Eileen’s work will long be a reminder to us all of her deep wisdom, wide-ranging intellect, prolific creativity and amazing beauty. She is greatly missed by all who knew her but her paintings and books will long live on to remind us of a true woman of substance.
