Peter Quinn RWS
Here and There

“Bright colour, a sense of place, and an enjoyment of paint are all hallmarks of Peter Quinn’s work. The scenes he depicts have a life, a vitality about them. They demonstrate a confident draughtsmanship and an eye for details that capture the spirit of a place so completely.”
