�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 12 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.
