Eileen Bonacci, a Berkeley Heights resident, has had a lifelong passion for art and the beauty of nature. Working mostly with oils, she has produced many beautiful floral paintings and many landscapes from her travels in the U.S. and abroad. “I enjoy painting images of places I have traveled to with my husband. The majority of my landscapes are of the Tuscan region of Italy,” she said. Following her retirement, she divides her time between art and her family.
