Neil Condron

Such an inspiring place and Neil is a wonderful mentor with a great sense of fun and brilliantly creative.

Following a 35 year in the graphic design industry Neil decided to follow ‘his dream’ and pursue his love of painting in 2008. Neil considers himself a ‘mature’ student of ”Galleries, Google, YouTube and anywhere else I can study how other artists do it – graduating anytime soon is unlikely!”.

Neil’s evocative painting ‘upon small shoulders‘ was bought by singer/songwriter Sinéad O’Connor and used as the image for her current album ‘How about I be me and you be you’. He enjoys painting in oils and pastels and digging his hands in clay. His forté is portraiture.

Neil is the founder/director of the Schoolhouse for Art.

I did the pastel workshop with Neil recently and had a really enjoyable day. We learned a lot in a very relaxed way, it was a lovely atmosphere and I would highly recommend it – a de-stress day and I will definitely be back!
