She earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Studio Art from California State University, Sacramento, and a Graphic Design Certificate from the University of California at Davis.

Eileen comments upon her personal life: "It is the process of creating visually pleasing or intellectually stimulating artwork that is most personally fulfilling for me as an artist; likewise, it is the process of experiencing a creative life as a woman, wife, mother, and daughter that is the most fulfilling for me in spirit. I thank the Lord for giving me the gift to create artwork and to share it with others."
