Award-winning artist Deborah Quinn-Munson

We are excited to introduce award-winning artist Deborah Quinn-Munson. Her pastels and oils are tranquil depictions of nature. Deborah finds inspiration in water, reflections, marsh and sea grass and grew up near the water.

Touches of glimmering light build a deep, meditative rhythm in her paintings. In her new oil, Shimmering Light, there is no horizon and sky. Reflections in the sparkling light gather on the water.

Thick, textured layers of paint applied with a painting knife channel the Abstract Expressionists whose gestural brushwork and strong composition she admires. With deft brushstrokes, she defines every part of the canvas to convey a beautiful scene.

Quinn-Munson received her Master of Arts degree from Wesleyan University and also studied at the Lyme Academy of College of Fine Arts.

Her private and corporate collectors include Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale, Pfizer, Aetna, Bridgeport Hospital, and Connecticut Bank and Trust. In 2015, she won Best of Show at the International Association of Pastel Societies Exhibition, and Best of Show at the National Juried Exhibition, Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. In 2014, she received the Great American Artworks Award, Pastel Society of America.
