Meet Eileen Arsenault
Life’s mission: To wake up.
Work: I manage the Arsenault Gallery, in Crayton Cove.
Proudest Achievements: I’ve just written a children’s book about saving Naples Bay, which is illustrated by Paul [Arsenault, her painter husband]. We hope it will be published by Earth Day.
Expectations for the Future: I expect to swim across Naples Bay as soon as it is cleaned up.
Favorite APP: Spotify for music, Google maps for helping me find my way.
Favorite website: Eco-Voice.org is a tremendous resource for what is ongoing in our Southwest Florida environment. It is updated every morning and chock-full of information.
Local causes supported: Preserve our Paradise, Audubon of Western Everglades, Gordon River Greenway, Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Harry Chapin Food Bank.
Favorite thing about Natural Awakenings: The calendar. I always appreciate Sharon’s timely and honest editorials.
Most frequented healthy food restaurant: Miz Ruby’s Kitchen (semiprivate).
How do you invest in your community: We donate a percentage of art sales to local and global charities. I serve on committees and boards dedicated to environmental protection.
Favorite quote: “We are stardust. We are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.” Joni Mitchell
What are you doing to be the change you want to see in the world?
Promoting the visual, musical and literary arts via events sponsored by the Banyan Arts Social and Pleasure Club. Rather than driving, Paul and I regularly bike and walk when possible.
