Connor Maguire. Irish Illustrator.

April 10, 2011

Connor Maguire was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1977.

He studied at the University of Ulster in Belfast before taking a year away from his studies

to work and travel where he spent a period of time in New York working in the United States.

Returning home Connor has now been working steadily as a freelance artist specialising in Illustration,

Ceramics, Website design, framing as well as working in every type of medium that is accessible to him

in regards of painting and drawing. Connors paintings are inspired from anything ranging from

everyday events, personal experiences, friends or family.

Connor says…”I originally became interested in art at an early age where I would watch my Grandfather

sketch and draw out ideas for projects as well as for the mere pleasure of drawing.

My Grandfather, an accomplished Draughtsman,carpenter, designer and watercolorist introduced me

to pencil drawing and charcoal. Inspired and hooked seeing what he could accomplish with a pencil

and a paintbrush I too attempted to paint as good as he did….. Still trying”

I’m sure you’ll all agree that he doesn’t really need to try much harder, I think he’s there already !

Great work Connor.
