Julie Connor is willing to accept commissions

I am a multi-media visual artist from Colchester in Essex.
My current focus is acrylic paintings in abstract expressionist and floral impressionist styles, but I am also an established portrait artist in pencil and pastel.

I have had a passion for art since I was a small child, having an artist uncle who was a big influence. Despite this, I moved through the educational system and into a conventional career, predominantly in the medical profession.

My love of art was reignited some years later, and I began working semi professionally taking portrait commissions. I was later able to pursue my art career full time and give up my nursing role.

My style of portraiture focuses on realism. I strive to create pieces that are as true-to-life as I can achieve, using traditional styling with some contemporary twists.

My move into canvas paintings started with a love of interior design and the desire to find unique artwork to compliment my own home decor.
