A major career shift from nursing to art saw Eileen heading to Emily Carr College of Art and Design as an adult. It was a dream come true to attend art school and attain a Fine Arts Certificate from Emily Carr in Vancouver, BC. An Instructor's Diploma from Vancouver Community College attained during her nursing career has also been extremely valuable in teaching watercolour courses for the Totally Terrified Beginner and the Not so Totally Terrified Intermediate as well as workshops for Painting on Fabric with Dyes.
