Meet the Artist

Piper O'Neill studied at Parsons School of Design in New York City where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration and Experimental Animation in 2001. O'Neill moved to Seattle where she received a Masters of Communication in Digital Media from the University of Washington in 2006. Her work explores the concept of inherited histories and nostalgia and she uses a variety of media, including delicate collaged tissue, large-scale steel sculpture and animated short films.

O'Neill's sculptures have been included in CoCA's "Heaven and Earth" outdoor sculpture exhibition and she received the 2012 judge's award for her tissue work in the juried "10x10xTieton" exhibition in Tieton, Washington. She has been featured in arts periodicals such as Art Ltd magazine, Studio Visit magazine and Vanguard Seattle. Her work is in many notable private and public collections, and she is a recent recipient of a National Endowments of the Arts grant through her recent appointment of Artist in Residence at Pratt Fine Art Center. Represented by Winston Wachter Fine Art, she will mount her second solo exhibition there in January 2014.
