O'Connell's Murals and Artwork

Work by Beth Amy O'Connell

About the Artist

     Welcome to my site.  I am currently living in Kratzerville, PA.  My name is Beth Amy, and I have a BFA in Art Studio with a concentration in Drawing.  This often surprises people, however I believe that if you can not draw it well, you will never paint it well.

     I grew up in Central PA as the second of four children.  As a child, the walls of our house were always covered in murals.  My mother loved to paint and seems to have passed that trait on to me.  Being a preacher's kid, I remember often sitting in church and drawing on any piece of paper I could get my hands on. I always wanted to be an artist and share the gifts that God has given me.  

    Painting on a large scale "happened" when I was in high school.  I was asked to help with the musical sets and soon discovered that the 20x40ft.  backdrops were really fun to paint.  I have never had to use grid systems or projectors to get my perspectives, it has always just come naturally.  After graduation I went back to my high school for several years to do backgrounds, that is when people began to approach me about painting in homes and businesses.  

    I am often asked what I like to paint.  My response?  If you can imagine it, I can paint it.  Challenge me!!
