Eileen Alice Soper

Born in England in 1905, Eileen Soper, at an early age developed a talent for etching, which she learned from her father, George Soper. The latter was a noted etcher, painter, and member of the Royal Academy. At the age of fifteen, Eileen, had her first exhibit of prints at the Print Makers Society of California in Los Angeles. The following year at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, she exhibited the etchings, "The Swing," and "La Barriere Cassee." The critics proclaimed her a child prodigy. Eileen's etchings were well drawn and devoted to the activities of children at play, work, and in pensive moods. A London neswpaper entitled a review of her work as, "Happy Children Pictures." Later on in her career, she developed a penchant for wildlife, and wrote and illustrated books, such as, When Badgers Wake,Happy Rabbit,Dormouse Awake, and Sail Away Shrew. She was founder member of the Society of Wildlife Artists. A collection of her etchings are at the Chicago Art Institute and the New York Public Library.
