About Brian Malachy Quinn
I started drawing and painting at an early age and began taking lessons at age nine. I have been influenced by many great artists such as Leonardo, Beatrix Potter, N.C. Wyeth and Arthur Rackham just to name a few. You can see those influences in my work. I enjoy doing both realistic and fanciful representations of animals and people in watercolors, digital, pen and ink, block prints and etchings. I live in Stow, Ohio with my family including my rescue cats: Sebastian and Missy who rule the roost.
