Celia Connaire


I grew up drawing X-Men comics with my grade school friends, watching the same Tom Baker Doctor Who episodes on PBS over and over again, reading Stephen King, and getting dropped off to see Mad Max and the Road Warrior double features at a local repertory theater.  I went on to read Love & Rockets, attend Rhode Island School of Design for illustration, and to study art history at Boston University.

I'm a visual storyteller, working in both traditional and digital media.  I make prints, comics, zines, and drawings, and have illustrated a variety of fantasy and horror stories.  

I'm a member of the Graphic Artists Guild, the Ocean County Artists Guild, The Belmar Arts Council, and the Printmaking Center of NJ; and one of the directors of of the Asbury Park chapter of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School.
