Jim Connelly

My creative process is grounded in keen observation. City scapes provide me with rich subject particularly when lighting plays off of ordinary objects, buildings and signage.

I frequently climb up to various heights and even get down on the ground to view different angles. Observing via these different perspectives only brings further inspiration. The common thread in work is my interest in and curiosity of perspective, lighting and design surrounding the ordinary.
