Eileen was born in Haasts Bluff in December 1956. Her father Charlie Tararu Tjungurrayi was one of the founding members of Papunya Tula Artists, and her mother, Tatali Nangala was also a very successful artist from 1996 until her death in 1999. Eileen grew up in Haasts Bluff and later moved to Kintore with her family when it was first established. The main site Eileen refers to in her paintings is Tjiturrulnga, which is slightly west of Kintore and the birthplace of her father. She often sat beside both of her parents as they worked and although doing her first painting in 1996, Eileen didn't start painting regularly until 1999.

Eileen has held numerous solo and group exhibitions across Australia and her work is held by the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the National Gallery of Australia. Eileen's work was exhibited by Cicada Trading gallery in the USA, France and the Middle East in 2006.
