Eleonore Weil was born in Berlin, Germany. From an early age, she painted portraits of family and friends. The inspiration to become a professional painter, however, did not develop until Eleonore lived for several years in Madrid. The influence of the light of Madrid and contemplation of the paintings in the Prado rekindled the desire to create in that environment. While exploring painting in classes under the tutelage of a Master Painter, Eleonore’s natural talent was recognized. This instructor encouraged her to pursue a degree at the Facultad de Belles Artes, allowing her to follow in the footsteps of Dali, Picasso, Juan Gris, and other great Masters of Spanish Art who had studied at that university.

Following an education grounded in the traditional explorations and expressions of art, Eleonore’s first art was in the field of abstract painting. In more recent years, however, she has returned to the styles in which she was grounded; the freedom of expression her paintings now demonstrate is a result of the ten years of painting with an abstract expression, balanced now with the foundation of art she had received at Facultad de Belles Artes. Although her current style is figurative, Eleonore has explored the use of different media, never fully abandoning the inventiveness that abstract art encourages.

Study of symbolism and alchemy proved critical in providing inspiration for this present stage of creation. Just as the blending of disparate forms might one day produce gold, the blending of the abstract and traditional forms of art have brought forth works that allow one to feel the organic nature of Eleonore’s paintings. She attributes this sense to the depth that is achieved from the numerous layerings applied during the process of creating one piece, all of which work together to make the works come to life. As an admirer of Paul Klee, Eleonore’s desire has been to use her art to "make the invisible world visible."
