Following her highly successful first solo exhibition just last year, leading fashion stylist and now established artist Sara O’Neill recently launched her second body of work to a rapidly growing fan base at Belfast’s Frame of Mine Gallery.

Inspired by fashion and literature, Sara’s collection of pictures entitled ‘Love Me to Death’ pays homage to the strength of the female character in the face of adversity.

At the private viewing, guests were treated to a drinks reception courtesy of Carnaby Brown before getting up-close and personal with Sara’s flourished flair for fashion illustration and devotion to detail. Thirteen detailed pencil drawings and mixed-media pieces featuring watercolour and pastel were on show as well as Sara’s limited edition prints and illustrated T-shirts, designed exclusively to coincide with the exhibition.

From themes of doomed love and tempestuous relationships to thrills and sensations and trials and tribulations, Sara has explored and visualised such works as ‘The Woman in White’, ‘Wuthering Heights’, ‘Masque of the Red Death’, ‘Macbeth’, ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘Rebecca’.

Sara’s work is available for purchase via Frame of Mine Gallery or by visiting Pieces are available at a range of prices up to £1,000 with sizes varying from 23x16in to 30x22in.
