Marion O'Connell Professional artist

I grew up in Lewisham, South East London.This heavily built up area was grey and quite dismal at times. Grandad gave me my first camera when I was 12, he said it was to capture memories and I fell in love with it. My camera became my escape route, the images, sometimes of street art were a place for me to travel to. I used that same camera well into my teens, then life took over. I became a fully fledged member of the rat race, earning a living meant that my time was consumed and my artistic flare was packed away, neglected and demoted to the occasional sketch or holiday snap. A few years ago I finally picked up my camera again, free to lavish more time on my love of photography. I have an unquenchable passion for art. As a self taught photographer I see the world in light, shapes and colour. I believe a picture should be the talking point of a room and strive to deliver art that will fire the imagination.

Photographic wall art reflects your personality, it makes a statement, whether it’s in your home, your office or business. It's a focal point for guests and visitors, evokes conversation and makes them feel like everything you do is unique - Our homes are worth more than mass produced pictures owned by everyone. Art, photographic or otherwise needs to be special and compliment its surroundings.

When choosing a print which will last for years, careful consideration in it's presentation and production is paramount.
