Welcome to my portfolio! My name is LJ Connell, and I am an artist based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but I maintain a boundless national and international platform. I have nearly 30 years of art experience, and I began my journey as an artist when I was 9 years old. I spent many of my early years in formal art programs, and with my natural talent, earned several scholarships which allowed me to receive premiere art training at the Governor's School for the Arts (GSA). I also attended Philadelphia’s famous Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) High School, where I perfected a variety of disciplines, including drawing, painting, graphic design, commercial arts, ceramics, 3-dimensional sculpture, and much more.

I’ve spent a large portion of my career as an independent graphic artist and web designer, while also working as an art instructor. My formal post-secondary training has expanded to include media arts and animation; and my portfolio showcases my versatility, my innovations, and my broad range of skills as an artist. I have experience working with popular entertainers, film producers, small business owners, large corporations, and local government including the City of Philadelphia Mayor’s Office. I specialize in creating custom designs that turn concepts and visions into reality.Life is my canvas; follow me while I create my story...
