About

Conor studied Biology at the University of Calgary (2002-06) and studied Fine Art at the Alberta College of Art & Design (2007-2009). He then moved to Toronto where he began work as a travelling "airbrush tattoo" artist (and sometimes henna artist) at festivals, corporate parties and events all over Southern Ontario. In 2013, he finally settled in Montreal. He's versatile, easy-going and hard-working. He is eager to work for you!

For the past 9 years (2005-2013), he has also organized a successful annual motivational artistic challenge called "Daily-Draw February" where artists sign up and attempt to post a new piece of art every day. In 2013, the event was held on the SatelliteSoda art forums (satellitesoda.com). 350+ artists participated.
