Honora O’Neill lives in the village of Clogher, far west on the Dingle peninsula where her studio is located across from the strand at Clogher. She is inspired by the ever-changing sea with its myriad colours, turbulence and ferocity framed by the rugged coastline, sky and cloud formations.

A graduate of the Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork, she was awarded an Honours Bachelors Degree in Fine Art Painting finishing among the top of her class and the recipient of numerous awards. Her work is on permanent exhibit at the Cork Institute of Technology and at the University College Cork.

Coming from a long line of ‘painters’ on both sides of her family, painting is ‘in the blood’ of this talented young artist.
