This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter and lithographer who settled in California, Eunice MacLennan was a well educated and respected art professional, both as a fine artist and teacher. Her subjects include portraits, birds, landscapes, and still lifes, and many of her large canvases feature animals. She was ever-concerned about the treatment and protection of wildlife and was a regular visitor to the bird refuge at Feather Hill Ranch near Santa Barbara. She also traveled to Sequoia and Yosemite to sketch deer.

A lecturer and writer, she wrote art columns that appeared in the "Monterey Peninsula Herald," the "Carmel Pine Cone," newspaper, and art journals.

She was a regular exhibitor between 1930 and 1960. Her California affiliations included the Carmel Art Association, California Water Color Society, and the Santa Barbara Art Association. She was also a member of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors.

MacLennan was the daughter of William and Frances Cashion and grew up from infancy in St. Louis. (She was born in Marquand, Missouri). Her first art teacher was Frederick Oakes Sylvester with whom she studied in high school.
She studied at the St. Louis School of Fine Art at Washington University (1905-06), and from 1908 to 1913, was head of the Art Department at Smith Academy in St. Louis. From 1913 to 1914, she was an art supervisor in the Los Angeles city schools. She married John MacLennan in 1914 and then returned to St. Louis to attend Washington University from 1914 to 1915. This education was followed by study, 1917-18, at the Art Institute of Chicago and then a teaching period at Santa Barbara State College in California. In the mid 1920s, she spent a year in Paris at the Academies Julian and Grande Chaumiere.

In 1928, she and her husband built a home with her studio in Montecito near Santa Barbara and from 1948 to 1963, they lived on the Monterey Peninsula.
