Hello! My name is Kayla O’Neal, and I was born and raised amongst the pine trees of Louisiana. I learned about AOEU in 2021 while browsing various universities that needed art professors. Two of my favorite things in the world are learning new things and being outside. Most of my personal artwork and practice focuses on themes of chronic illness and creating more diversity and awareness for individuals with health conditions. I fell in love with teaching art classes in 2014 and have been following that dream since then.
