A native of Southern California, Sally O'Neill has lived in the foothills of the Northern Oregon Cascade Mountains since 1991. Throughout her life, Sally has always been involved in the arts. As a child, she enjoyed painting and drawing in addition to music studies. She majored in music in college and is an accomplished pianist. Sally worked in the medium of watercolor for a period of time in the 1980's. In 1998, Sally went back to painting seriously working solely in oils.

"As soon as I started painting with oils I knew I had found the perfect medium to express my artistic vision. As an admirer of the impressionist I am obsessed with light, color and atmosphere. Through the layering of colors and texture I'm trying to achieve the effects of light at different times of the day. Overall, I want my paintings to bring the viewer into a world they would love to be in, that of beauty and sun drenched days."

Sally's plein air and studio paintings reflect her enthusiasm for life and an appreciation for her subject matter. She has studied painting with a number of prominent artists including Ruben Arizpe Sr., Camille Przewodek and Bill Ahrendt. Until his death in 2007, Sally also had a constant mentor and artistic ally in her father-in-law, watercolorist, Don O'Neill.
