Odell Archibald grew up in the small town of Stephenville Crossing, and is the youngest of 11 children. Odell paints almost daily, drawing inspiration and ideas from her familiar surroundings and personal memories. Exactly one year after taking lessons she produced her first limited edition print. Since that time she has produced other reproductions from her original work. She has done many original commissions, working mainly with acrylic. Odell lives in Kippens located in Western Newfoundland, and her love for family and country living is reflected in her work.
