But Seriously: The Cancer Podcast

Eileen Powers (Part One) - Survivor of Lymphoma

January 19, 2022

Eileen is an artist working with photography, digital collage, typography, and performative self-portraiture. A professional communications designer, Eileen’s finds inspiration in the source material of her trade: advertising imagery, stock art and publicity photography.


After being treated for lymphoma from 2018–20, Eileen underwent a radical shift in identity. Her work is an exercise in self-plasticity and resurrection. By reimagining personal loss, Eileen creates a place for possibility, experimentation and collaboration. She is an MFA candidate (June 2021) at Lesley University.


Eileen has been cancer-free for almost two years.
