Christpoher O'Conner has joined the gallery

Christopher was born in Dingle in 1974,
a once, remote fishing town off the southwest coast of Ireland.
At 15, he was given a box of oil paints ~ and began painting.
Soon . . . books and paintings were piling up
as he became absorbed in reading about the lives & works
of artists such as Michelangelo, van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso.
At 19, he set out on his travels to see these masterpieces,
as well as those of his contemporaries.
Christopher has lived in both Ireland & America,
and through the years has continued to steadily work & exhibit.
These days, it is in the quiet of his studio,
or wandering through the nearby fields, forests & mountains
that Christopher is most likely to be found.
