Connie Chadwell


The infinite variety of the face and figure provide Connie with an endless source of inspiration for her artwork. Whether drawing from the posed model, from people going about theirdaily lives, or from memory, she strives to capture the expressiveness of the human form.

Connie studied at the Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia, for three years, with a concentration in drawing and painting the figure. She also took courses at The Washington Studio School, as well as art workshops at the Smithsonian Institution.

Since returning from the Washington, D.C. area to her native Texas, Connie has taken workshops with Doug Dawson, Kim English, Miles Mathis, and Perrin Sparks. She also studies in the Master of Art Education program at Texas Tech University. Connie has a B.A. from The University of Texas at Austin.

One of her drawings from life will be included in the upcoming North Light book: Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing.

Connie’s award-winning works are regularly exhibited in juried regional and national shows and are in many private collections.
