Contemporary Portrait Artist

Michaela O Connell is a contemporary portrait artist who primarily paints with oils. She completed her B.A. in Fine Art (Painting) in Limerick School of Art and Design in 2013.

Since then Michaela has shown work in various galleries around Ireland, including a solo show in The Marketplace Gallery, Armagh in 2016 and most recently in The Courthouse Gallery, Clare.

Michaela’s work is inspired by the solitude of one’s inner world, connections, intimacy, and the subconscious. Through her paintings she offers the viewer a mirror to reflect their own inner world. There is often a stillness to the work which is emphasized through a muted, earthy palette and soft facial expressions that gaze back at the viewer.
