Eileen originally sold dot paintings to tourists at the Barrow Creek Pub.

In the late 1990's Eileen enrolled in the Certificate in Art & Craft course, which fostered the development of her unique visual language.

During her studies, Eileen exhibited in Melbourne, where her work was purchased by the National Gallery of Victoria.

Eileen's work is published in the NGV catalogue Colour Power, featured on the cover of the IAD Press Kaytetye Dictionary and in the Jukurrpa 2010 Diary.

Both lyrical and ephemeral, Eileen's work comprises floating flowers, bush tucker and sacred hills surrounded by tonally gradated backgrounds.
