Cathy Quinn

I grew up in Melbourne and have spent many years living in both London and Hong Kong. I currently work from my studio at the bottom of my garden in Kew. Prior to this I was part of the Abbotsford Convent Arts Community and my studio was one of the old nun’s bedrooms. I burst out of that space once I began larger works and increased output by giving away my day job at the NGV. I'm inspired by warm weather, lush landscape, colour, texture and people with positive energy.

My current practice is an interpretation of my environment and experiences conditioned by my imagination.
Looking into the distance and experiencing the uncertainty of what lies within and beyond those undulating mountains.
My focus is on the ambiguity created by melding the shapes and weaving layers of colour light and atmosphere.
