About Marita Connelly
Recently a Sr. Graphic Artist/3D Modeler-Animator for Festo Didactic (previously Lab-Volt Systems) for 22 years, I also freelance in fine art and sculpting, creating real and surreal characters and designs. When at the canvas I most enjoy surrealism and like bringing the viewer's focus to the microcosms often missed when our busy lives leave us seeing only the big and most obvious picture. The wandering imaginings that provoke philosophical thought are what draw me in and ultimately are drawn out. To me, art is a vehicle for self analysis with doodles being subconscious surfacings.
A few years ago I experienced a life changing event which has enhanced my life perspective. It brought me to NZ where I now find myself wanting very much to live and work.
