Portrait of Eileen

16” x 20”

This is a portrait of my friend  Dr. Eileen Jokinen, a retired biology professor from the University of Connecticut.  I admire her as a strong woman having made her own way in science when it was difficult for a woman to do so.  Now she is living back on the Island her Finnish family immigrated to.
