About me


I'm Daniel O'Connell, an Independent Fine artist, and Illustrator based in London, United Kingdom.

My interests include Fine art with a focus on Portraiture and Myth. Design & Illustration, and both Digital & Traditional Painting

I draw visual inspiration from paintings of old from the eras; (Renaissance, Baroque, Romanticism, and Art Nouveau), the natural world, literature, and the soul. 

As an artist, I believe we should never stop evolving. As such I am passionate about exploring different styles & mediums.

I’m always looking to collaborate with people and organisations to create beautiful illustrations and designs. If you would like to get in touch, feel free to fill in the contact form below!

I was born in the UK in 1994. I spent most of my childhood living between the countryside on the south coast of England and on the cusp of the bustling city of London,  having this double-sided life early on surely had a lasting effect on me.

Looking back, I believe this dual lifestyle helped form my perception of the world, helping me find the natural beauty in the mundane.  I spent some time studying biology, philosophy, and physics alongside my artistic practice during my later teens, furthering my passion for the physical and metaphysical.  This new perspective imbued in me a deep respect for the strangeness of our awe-inspiring being.
