Eileen Hall was born in Ecuador and has lived in Scotland for  22 years. Since the death of her father Stan Hall (Scottish engineer, explorer and historian) in 2008, Eileen has carried on his research and exploration of Cueva de los Tayos as well as continuing his work in protecting this fragile landscape.


In architecture Eileen has worked with a number of award winning practices, including WT Architecture where she met Tamsin Cunningham and co founded  the Open Close arts collective in 2015.

Eileen’s creative practice and projects with Tamsin are inspired by her interest in sensory experience, place awareness, phenomenology and the psychology of wellbeing in relation to the environments and spaces we inhabit, both in nature and cities. Her drawing and painting practice draws on allegory and abstract symbolism as a means to explore the workings of our consciousness.
