Ann Quinn is a painter who lives and works in Ireland.
"Every piece of work I have made is based on a specific place I have spent time in. My paintings are about places, but in fact I am going for the atmosphere. I use places in order to instil an atmosphere; this is the main element that I go for. It is the same atmosphere that appears in works of literature and in films. This is the reason why I cherish literature, films and paintings so much; it is the essence of the book, the film or artwork that I seek out."
