About Connie Velin
I was lucky to grow up in a household that valued beauty, nature and creativity. I have been an artist of one form or another my entire life. In my earliest adult life, I was a writer/photographer. Then I enjoyed a career in dance as a teacher, choreographer, performer, and administrator before turning to sculpture. Now I concentrate on painting. As you can see from my pages, I love to experiment with styles! I also love commissions!
Often color is the impetus for my painting, but quickly my background in dance and sculpture come into play. I love exploring movement, mass, void, rhythm, line and form. The excitement that color lends these elements is like sprinkles on a doughnut. My abstract compositions are often guided by my background in choreography, recalling pattern, repetition, shape, line and energy.
