About me – Mike Quinn the Artist
Although I’ve been drawing all my life, I’ve only taken up painting as more than a hobby over the last five years. I come from a family of artists on my father’s side and both he and my uncle, Tom Quinn, studied at Camberwell School of Art in South London.
I started by using watercolour, like many people new to painting and enjoyed monochrome subjects resembling the old sepia photos of the forties and fifties before moving on to acrylic and oils, still trying to develop a style I could call my own. I then became interested in pastels and enjoyed the intensity of colour they could give. I now enjoy painting pet and animal portraits in pastel and feel that I have finally found my calling!
