Welcome to Ryan O'Neill Studios. A modern art brand focused on Canadian abstract landscapes.

BIO and CV

Ryan O’Neill – The Abstract World of an Artist 

As an Artist I work with an abstract mind focusing on a modern touch. Using and exploring a variety of mediums such as oil, acrylic and watercolor paints as well as pastel, charcoal and graphite. With the main focus on color and texture. For me, painting atmosphere is as important as scenery or subject matter.

I was born in Montreal, and presently live and paint in Ottawa. I am a self-taught artist focusing on original fine art painting.

Ryan O’Neill Studios – A Modern Abstract Art Brand 

Ryan O’Neill Studios is where I explore all aspects of abstract art. Painting and art is like life sometimes messy, sometimes hard to control but always beautiful and worth the daily creative challenge just like life. Art guides me to stay focused and free to learn and practice new techniques but it also lets me take a creative journey, a journey of loose and free-thinking brush strokes. A journey of when the process and the results are finished inspiring me, it then goes out into the world and inspires others.

I have sold and shipped art all over the world and have exhibited my work in a variety of high-end gift stores, museum gift shops, design shops and specialty shops as well as art shows and several art galleries.
