About Sally O’Neill
A native of Southern California, Sally O’Neill recently moved to St. George, UT after living in the foothills of the Northern Oregon Cascades since 1991.
“It is about capturing the beauty of a place or thing for me. My vision is to elicit the splendor that surrounds us all. As an admirer of the impressionists, I am obsessed with light, color and atmosphere. Through the layering of color and texture, I strive to achieve the influence of light at varying moments of the day. My aspiration is to bring the viewer into a world they would love to be in.”
Sally’s plein air and studio paintings reflect her enthusiasm for life and an appreciation for her subject matter. She has studied with a number of prominent artists including Ruben Arizpe, Sr., Camille Przewodek, William Ahrendt, Ovanes Berberian, Becky Joy and Kathryn Stats. Until his death in 2007, Sally also had a constant mentor and artistic ally in her father-in-law, watercolorist, Don O’Neill. Through the blending of these influences, Sally has created her own unique approach, style and insight.
Sally’s continues to be the recipient of numerous awards. Most recently, she was awarded the Southwest Art Magazine “Award of Excellence” at the Cannon Beach Plein Air Event.
