About Ann Quinn

‘There are certain rare moments in life when I feel I am witnessing magic, I try to capture this in a painting. I grew up on a dairy farm in East Donegal, where the large dramatic skies and open landscape have influenced my vision as a painter.  Many of my paintings are a visual diary and an emotional interpretation of events in my life, featuring people and places that are dear to me. I make paintings in order to have a conversation with, or tell a story to the viewer. When I produce a body of work I feel as if each painting is a chapter of one book.’ [quote from Ann Quinn's website]

Ann Quinn was born in Donegal in 1978 and received a BA in Fine Art Painting from the National College of Art & Design in 2000.  Her work is in the collections of the Office of Public Works, Trinity College Dublin, the National Self Portrait Collection of Ireland, Donegal County Museum, Donegal County Council, Donegal County Library, and the Health Service Executive.

Ann Quinn was elected as an Associate Member of the Royal Hibernian Academy in 2022. She is represented by Taylor Galleries, Dublin.
