Eileen Tomson is a native Californian, born in downtown Los Angeles of two British parents, she currently resides in Nashville and part time in Southern California. As a graduate from California State University, Long Beach, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration, she started her own company called Jag Graphics in downtown San Diego. Eileen’s miniature canvases led themselves to the small medium of greeting card illustration. During the 10 years of business, her greeting cards were sold across the country from showrooms in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Dallas. The cards were featured in the Beverly Hills Neiman Marcus, Trifles catalogue, Marshall Field’s, Bloomingdale’s, and the Tate Museum in London, England. Princess Michael of Kent, being an avid gardener, has a collection of her floral and garden notepaper. She has designed for other various companies including jewelry for a San Diego company, and frames for Terragraphics based in San Francisco. Eileen has her stationery in various fund raising events. Eileen was one of the featured artists for The Adelicia Design Tour, and one of 6 featured artists for Vanderbilt University's Commencement Art Bazaar at Sarratt Gallery Student Center. Previously designed stationery for the Antique and Garden Show, and auction art for the Swan Ball.
