Conor was born in Belfast in 1969. Educated at Campbell College and the Art College (York Street), he went on to study music at Colchester Instititue, after which he returned to Belfast to pursue a career in painting.
His first exhibited work was in the R.U.A show at the Ulster Museum (1996) and has been involved in collective shows both in Belfast and New York. This is his first solo show since his sell out exhibition at the Ava Gallery, Clandeboye ( Sept 2007).
His work shows a sensitivity to traditional values in painting. His choice of colours, although subdued in many works, allow the viewer to appreciate a more subtle approach. His line is charged with his own personal experience and creates works of quiet beauty drawing from his imagination and study of life.
