Meet Connie Avery

“I love the colors, movements, and stories in art. I love the joy, surprises, feelings, and emotions that come from creating art.” Connie’s art is a reflection of her experiences, her family, and her vision. Connie lives with Retinitis Pigmentosa and Usher’s Syndrome, diseases which progressively reduce her ability to see and hear. She dedicated her first career to nursing, but after having her daughter at age 40, she went to college to pursue her dream of becoming an artist and graduated proudly with her degree. Connie's style is inspired by the art of her late brother, who created stained glass windows. The thrill of seeing colors, lights, and atmospheric shadows and highlights inspires her to push her art to new levels.
