ABOUT

PROFESSIONAL PRACTISE

Kate Ormond O’Neill is a contemporary photographic artist and curator. Her work focuses on environmental, social and historical themes through landscapes and seascapes, which are produced via digital and analogue processes on various media.

As a photographic practitioner she is inclined to work on long-term projects through alternative photographic and print processes, with environmentally sustainable media and materials at the heart of her practice.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT + MENTORSHIP

In addition to her practice, O’Neill has spent over 15 years working across the creative industries in both the UK and Ireland, supporting and encouraging artists through talks, workshops, mentorships, portfolio reviews, collaborative projects and curated exhibitions.

This – combined with a core belief that art and expression of art should be accessible to all and used as a universal tool – has enabled her to utilise her skills in social engagement and professional development via projects and exhibitions. Her roles with The Visual Loop, Life Framer, and Brighton Photo Fringe have enabled her to achieve large-scale projects, events and collaborations with leading organisations and established artists.

O’Neill is also Founding Director of both The OGC and The Visual Loop – platforms initiated to support visual artists throughout all aspects and levels of their career.
