Kristin Gaudio Endsley, The Light From Within (2023). Acrylic on canvas. 48 x 60 x 1.5 in.

Kristin O’Connor's work explores femininity, sexuality, and self acceptance. Her current series of paintings create a lurid and whimsical world in which she reexamines narratives that demonize sex and pleasure.
She graduated with a BFA in Painting from the University of Tampa in 2013, and received her MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2015.
