Donalda O’Neill


    I grew up in Northern Ireland and moved to England in the 1990s. Painting had become a way to reconnect with a place that formed my earliest experiences. A place of conflict that has profoundly changed both politically and socially since I left, I feel a sense of rediscovery in the familiar each time I return. I’m drawn to isolated places, finding peace, stillness and a renewed appreciation of the immense beauty and diversity in the Irish landscape, from wild, rugged and barren to lush, colourful and green. The process of painting these places brings a sense of belonging and of rediscovery that sit alongside nostalgia and memory.
