Contemporary artist Michele O’Neil resides on the coast of Cape Ann. She has been working with watercolor and oil paints for well over a decade expressing a love for the landscape of her home, the details that populate it, and the ever awe-inspiring light that exalts it. This reverence for her surroundings brings her canvas and brushes “en plein air” allowing the energy of the experience to lead her creative process. If she travels, Michele’s easel travels with her so that any opportunities of inspiration are not wasted. Michele had studied and taken workshops with artists Paul George, Alvaro Castagnet, George Van Hook, and Colley Whisson. She has won numerous awards across Cape Ann and continues to be an active part in the classical art community.
