Aleda O’Connor is a Toronto born Hamilton based artist who has been working in Oil Pastels for more than 20 years, one of very few artists to work primarily in this medium.
Until recently she drew her inspiration from the Canadian rural landscape, but in 2014 she turned her attention to sheep as a subject for her very successful solo exhibition “Flock”. In a 2015 two person show with Barry Coombs, #Hamilton Two Views, she added urban landscape to her repertoire.
Her work has been shown in galleries in Canada and Korea and is in private collections in Canada, United States and Ireland. Her paintings are also featured on sets for Canadian television programs.
Aleda spent her childhood summers on a farm at Bond Head north of Toronto. She acquired a permanent affection for Southern Ontario’s rural agricultural landscape and remains inspired by the geometry of open fields, drumlins and woodlots that anchor her observations of the climatic conditions that continuously transform familiar landscapes.
