Ailíse O’Neill (b. Waterford, 1986).
Ailíse is a local visual artist and designer. She graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2009 with BA(H) Degree in Fine Art Printmaking. Ailíse then moved to Belfast where she received her Master in Fine Art at the University of Ulster in 2012. Her work stems from an underlying interest in light, fleeting moments, memories and the essence of place and time.
Ailíse explores these issues through the use of pinhole photography, film, video projections and light installations pushing the boundaries of pinhole and experimental photography.

Ailíse has participated in numerous exhibitions across Ireland and Northern Ireland and is currently working on establishing and developing her art practice.
