Barry Quinn

I have been drawing and painting since as long as I can remember. Mainly down to having an artist for a mother, who always encouraged creativity and individuality. Growing up in the countryside, I've always had a love of the natural world, and this has had a huge influence on my work, in content and process.

I source all my materials with the aim of creating as eco-friendly and sustainable process as possible, using recycled papers, found woods and secondhand or waste materials to paint and draw on. I make and bind my own sketchbooks and clean up old frames for display. My prints are on recycled and sustainably sourced papers.

I use cotton and recycled papers. I aim to use recycled and biodegradable packaging as often as possible.
