Helena O'Neill a native of Co. Wexford moved to Wicklow at age thirteen and commenced her Fine Art Training with Jean Renard Goullet. A Breton Sculptor and Painter living in Wicklow, Helena studied with Jean for the next seven years.

She went onto study Occupatinal Therapy and it was this work that enabled her to travel and paint for the next twenty years . During this time she worked in Australia, USA,UK and Saudi Arabia holding exhibitions both at home and abroad.

Helena is now based in West Cork where she continues to paint.  Her main focus of interest is the effect of light, day or night. Over the last couple of years she focused on Urban Landscapes concentrating on night light and capturing the buzz of city living. She mainly works in Oil and Pastel.

She has participated in Group and solo exhibitions throughout Ireland both Juried and non-Juried. In 2005 Helena was invited as part of a group of Irish Artists by the grandson of Pissarro to exhibit at the Salon de la Rochelle in France, where they were awarded gold medals for their work. She has continued to exhibit there at the invitation of the Salon.

She was elected a Full Member of the Pastel Society of Ireland in 2010.

Her work may be seen at the Boathouse Gallery, Kinsale, Co Cork and at the Cork Art Society, Lavitt Gallery, Cork.
