About Quin Sweetman

Art Prints

“Life is full of beautiful moments and I strive to capture the vibrancy of those experiences on canvas.” In her plein aire, life drawing, photography and studio compositions, Quin Sweetman hopes to convey the unique energy of her subject, whether it be human, rock or building. “I’d like people to see life and movement in my work; to feel a sense of being there.”

Sweetman’s work has evolved in response to a wide array of influences including many talented Northwest painters and study of the Impressionists. She grew up in Minneapolis, a middle child, always closely observing people and her surroundings, but didn’t take up art-making until 10 years ago when she took a job with a Portland art gallery. Sweetman is now content to spend her days painting and photographing the abundant beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
