The Big Island’s Calley O’Neill is a highly respected, well-known public artist, visionary and prolific designer with a broad range of creative experience. Journalists have described her as a wayfinder, a force of nature, a positive force, and wise woman; and praised her art as ethno-visionary, dynamic and breathtaking with a crystalline mastery of glaze painting, light and color. Her pioneering art, which spans more than four decades, finds its expression in provocative mixed media paintings, a groundbreaking collaboration with Rama the elephant artist, public murals, stained glass mosaic and relief, and ecological design.

  In these her planetary vision is incorporated into ecological fine art that stands on its own merits, and also serves the purpose of nourishing the Earth and all its inhabitants. Her art, design work and dynamic teaching speak to human evolution, transformation, healing, sustainability and restoration on every level.’ Calley’s work derives from her love of nature and humanity, her relentless creativity and experimentation, and her passion to make a difference in the world. Calley’s dream is to help create a future that is better than we can imagine.
