Barb O'Neil grew up in Halifax, but was always drawn to rural Nova Scotia. After finishing university, she has lived in several rural areas and has now settled with her family in New Ross. She has pursued various artistic mediums. Barb trained as a florist in Holland, and had a successful flower business for 10 years until she changed paths and focused on her painting. She is mostly self taught, but takes courses at NSCAD regularly to expand her painting techniques. Her work is as varied as her interests, but she most often prefers painting abstracted landscapes inspired by the beautiful scenery around her home and along the south shore. In 2011 she opened Trilogy Gallery in Mahone Bay in order to have an area to show both her work and those of other local artists.
