Marykate's paintings have been exhibited throughout NYC's galleries and are held private as well as university collections. O'Neil's paintings are work is filled with sly- affectionate nods to the New York School; the Bay Area's figurative movement and pop artists while maintaining a firm footing in the here and now,  O'Neil has studied at the Art Student's League, the New York Studio School, Parsons and Mass Art.  "The more I paint,  the more I feel like my paintings look like my songs sound --- both are kind of ‘left of the dial’ explorations of small moments. I am drawn to contradiction: bitter/sweet; simple/ layered; witty/angsty; tenderness/humor. My approach is always the same --- just to make something that can be viewed or listened to 'on repeat' and each time find a little something".
