“Nature has always been an important and soothing influence in my life.” – Nancy O’Neill
Plants, animals, trees, the seashore, and the ever changing colors of the sky are sources of fascination and serve as inspiration to capture that beauty on paper.
Nancy O’Neill grew up in Boston, Massachusetts. She started her art education at a young age, often visiting the area’s many museums. Later, Nancy studied art at the University of Massachusetts. Nancy embraces and has studied in various artistic media; oil, acrylic, and watercolor. The award winning artist has studied with local teachers such as Katherine Smit and Diane Panairelli Miller and continues to enhance her skills with nationally acclaimed instructors such as Don Andrews (2018) and Janet Rogers (2019 and 2023). Nancy has studied and shown her work in New England, Florida, France, and Spain. In 2019, Nancy was featured in a solo show at the Concept Shed in Millbrook Marketplace in Duxbury. That same year, she won First Place in Watercolor at the Duxbury Art Association Summer Show. More recently, the Helen Bumpus Gallery in the Duxbury Free Library presented over twenty of the artist’s watercolor paintings in a solo exhibit.
