About Breda

Breda Greaney O'Neill is an Irish Artist residing in County Kilkenny.

From a young age, art has been her passion - there was always a pencil or paint brush in hand and encouraging words from her parents.

Inspired by a wonderfully talented Art Teacher while at Secondary School, Breda pursued the same path and graduated with a B.A (Hons) in Art & Design Education from The National College Of Art & Design, Dublin.

Over the past 15 years, Breda has shared her passion for art by teaching at both secondary school and private art school, with the aim of instilling a love of art in her students.

She now also focuses the majority of her time on painting and managing her gift shop, Breda's Gift Shop in Kilkenny, with her husband Eoghan.

For Breda, inspiration is everywhere but her recurring theme is her love of flora and fauna. Instilled in her while growing up, surrounded by endless colour and wonder on the farm in North Galway.

Her paintings aim to uplift, inspire and celebrate the beauty and wonder that surrounds us all.
