Artist Statement

As a contemporary artist residing in the scenic West of Ireland, I find inspiration in the captivating landscapes surrounding me and the rich heritage ingrained within this land. My artistic journey is a bold exploration of these elements, conveyed through a non-conformist approach to abstraction.

In my work, I strive to capture the Irish landscape’s essence and energy, translating its raw beauty onto the canvas. Boldness and audacity are integral aspects of my artistic style. I embrace the freedom to push boundaries and challenge traditional notions of representation. Through my bold, non-conformist approach, I hope to inspire curiosity, ignite the imagination, and provoke a deeper appreciation for the world around us.

Ms. O’Neill holds a bachelor’s degree focused on Heritage Studies, a Degree in Art and Design, and an Honors Degree in Fine Art from the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology. This educational background has provided her with a deep understanding of the historical and cultural aspects that shape our artistic heritage.
