Welcome to the ART of Imogen O'Neil
Here you will find unique quality apparel, home decor and prints featuring my hand-painted artworks that speak of love & respect for nature, the Australian wilderness & the value of community... Thankyou for coming!
Art of ION is the art of Imogen O’Neil...
"Initially, the creations of a charged particle!"
I am from the beautiful rainforest village of Kuranda in Far North Queensland, Australia.
My ‘brick and mortar’ outlet is SHOP 4/13 Therwine St, Kuranda, above the Original Markets. Both there, and here in my online store, you will find quality apparel, decor, wall art and more, featuring prints of my originally hand-painted art works!
I have worked as a free-lance artist for approx.25 years, including dressing stages and dance floors with my original banners and other installations for many Australian festivals and events, for approx.15 years. I believe beautiful visual displays can compliment sound-scapes in all different environments to create amazing and harmonious sensory experiences!
After completing my HSC at Cairns High where I was enrolled in the CAD course (Centre for Artistic Development), I went on to graduate East Sydney Technical College in 1993 with a Fine Arts Diploma majoring in photography and painting.
I wouldn’t say my studies led on to conventional or guaranteed work. Certainly I’ve had a colourful life experience thus far, many hard won lessons and huge appreciation of effort and reward! I believe my perseverance, resilience and gratitude have a lot to do with where I find myself these days...
Everything in life has a story and much of my art does too! Having finally found platforms to re-produce my work, the dream of making a sustainable living from it has culminated in this collection of my previous works on quality products! Massive gratitude also goes to my amazing printer and team in Bali, without whom this venture would not be possible. We share a mutually beneficial creative relationship that has supported both his family and myself during these challenging times in the world!
As my customer base grows and this small business floats, I look forward to having time to create some fresh new art pieces!
I hope you love my art and products and find something that makes you feel good! xx
