O’Connor was born in Dublin and first exhibited there in 1809. He was well known for paintings of his native Ireland and had visited the west of the country in 1818-1819 where he painted a series of landscapes commissioned by Lord Sligo at Westport. He lived in London from 1822, but continued to paint pictures of Ireland, exhibiting 21 landscapes at the Royal Academy between 1822 and 1840.
