Windy O'ConnorBack to Artists
Windy O’Connor has studied under the guidance of Kelli Sanford and is currently a student with Andy Braitman. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Carolina and her life long passions include music, theatre, and art. Windy views each of her paintings as an attempt to disconnect from the realty of an object or landscape through traditional representation and abstraction. Her work is driven primarily by her love of color and the feel of paint. ” I love to add add layers of paint to the canvas and for me… paint itself is the subject of each piece. I see God’s beauty all around me each and everyday. I also know that I could not come close to painting a realistic image of what He has created. Therefore, I honor nature through abstraction and expressionism.”Windy is a wife and mother and currently living in Charlotte, NC. She is the winner of the 2012 Art With Heart Emerging Artist Competition.
