Her work is represented in numerous private and public collections including Frac Basse Normandie in Caen, France, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Several monographs and artist’s books have been published on O’Neill’s work, including Redheaded Stranger (Karma, 2014), Forests, Gardens & Joe’s (J & L Books/Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris, 2011), The Old Woman’s Shoe (One Star Press, 2009) and Amy O’Neill: Suburban Imagination (JRP Ringier, 2008).
