ABOUT

Windy O’Connor is an award-winning American painter whose work is collected around the globe. Her art and design passion developed into a lifestyle brand of textiles, wallpaper, clothing, and home accessories. She has a degree in Interior Design and has studied under artist Andy Braitman in studio painting. Her work is guided by the notion that “life is a pursuit of creating something that brings another person joy” and conveys an experience, emotion, memory, or person, thanks to her dedication to utilizing various mediums.

Her series of abstract portraits of women she calls Chicas has taken on a life of their own. “That is the power of energy in the creative process!” Windy’s Chicas represent the intricacies, humor, strength, and power of women. They are our mothers, sisters, friends, and history makers.

Windy’s work has been featured in House Beautiful, Southern Accents, Traditional Home, The Zoe Report, and several Charlotte publications. She was chosen as the Mint Museum Artist for the Women of Vision Luncheon in 2019. Her work was recently in a group exhibit entitled “Local/Street” at the Mint Museum, and she will be a part of a group show at Elder Gallery in Charlotte, NC in late 2021. Her studio and showroom are located at Camp North End in Charlotte.
