Neil Condron is a Dublin born artist working in the beautiful surrounds of Enniskerry County Wicklow. Having spent three decades immersed in the Irish graphic design industry Condron eventually shed the shackles of commercial art to commit to a lifelong ambition of becoming a professional artist. Neil's forte is portraiture in both oil and soft pastel. Neil's thought provoking painting 'upon small shoulders' which echoed the demise of the Irish economy was acquired by singer songwriter Sinead O'Connor and used as the cover of her album 'how about I be me'. The painting was subsequently auctioned for charity and raised €19,500.
Neil established the Schoolhouse for Art in Enniskerry Village in 2003 which is steadily gaining a reputation for providing an extensive range of classes and workshops in an ideal environment. Neil has his studio in the SfA where he also teaches life drawing and pastel classes.
