Ilene Meyer

Ilene MEYER Accomplished International Artist Passes Ilene Meyer passed away at her Gig Harbor home surrounded by her friends on June 3, 2009.Ilene was born in Seattle, WA on December 30th, 1939. Her first claim to artistic fame came at age seven when she was invited to place a piece of her artwork in the Alki time capsule at Alki Point, WA. Ilene, inspired as a child by her mother's artwork, was self taught. At the age of thirty, Ilene dedicated her life to the pursuit of her art. A master of many art forms, Ilene was self described as a surrealist with a twist; "a combination of reality, fantasy, and realism". Ilene's pieces show intense depth of feeling through her use of color, light, and vivid detail. Her work is a reflection of her travels and exploration of both Eastern and Western cultures. Ilene's paintings are a true window to her mind, spirit, and soul. Ilene was an internationally published artist in the United States and Asia. Ilene has had numerous exhibitions in the United States, Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagasaki, Japan. Through the combination of elements from the many cultures she studied, Ilene displayed an innate sense of humanity in all forms. Her paintings are filled with messages that appeal to the importance of the preservation and dignity of all life forms. Ilene is survived by her sister Nancy Meyer, of Federal Way, WA; her brothers Robert Meyer, of Okanogan, WA; and Richard Meyer of Pine Top, AZ; as well as numerous members of extended family throughout the Seattle area. Ilene's remarkable talent and friendship to all will be greatly missed. A memorial service will be held at Haven of Rest Memorial Cemetery, Highway 16 in Gig Harbor, WA on July 11, 2009 at 11:00am. Coffee reception to follow. Sign Ilene's on-line Guest Book at www.Legacy.com.
