Wendy Quinnell

I am a self taught artist and enjoy creating figurative art and landscapes. Mostly working in oil paints and pastels, I also love using new mediums.

My art is constantly evolving, and I like experimenting with various effects that invoke emotions and bring back memories.

I’m really interested in human connections and physical body shapes, exploring a wide range of issues with a distorted sense of realism. I paint using texture and colour, working with oils, mediums and different surfaces 

I have studied with award winning artist, Martin Kinnear, exploring classical and modern oil painting, referencing painters throughout history to discover how they created their work.

This year I am exhibiting with THE DEEPFORD ARTISTS  at the Bainton Reading Room.
