Artist Biography: Conner is a native Calgarian born in the late 80s. He was first introduced to the arts at Queen Elizabeth High School where he honed his artistic skills. From there, he sought out challenges and chose to work with metal. Conner is Metal Hands, making the impossible out of metal into possible unique artwork.
How did he become that? Growing up, he hung out in his bedroom reading comic books at age 6 and started drawing comics at 8, and then at 15, he entered an internship program learning to become a machinist for the summer. It gave him the opportunity to discover the welding master that was hidden within him so he ended up as a welder, not a machinist. It was an amazing experience for him to realize his passion as a Welding Artistan. Conner currently works as a metal artisan for a private, unique client who is passionate about all things to do with science fiction, fantasy, community and technology. Conner creates unusual welded art pieces and is having an awesome time!
