Meltem Quinlan


Location: London

Meltem Quinlan after graduating from Ege University, Izmir where she read economics she moved to London in the early 1980s where she has continued to live ever since. Meltem has attended fine art courses at Chelsea and Richmond Schools of art and then she committed to painting at Heatherley School of FineArt in Chelsea where she has been able to explore new avenues and develop her own painterly language. Meltem’s work is drawn from sources as diverse as the Human figure, the constantly changing landscape around her and her life experiences. On viewing Meltem’s work the viewer is drawn into the painting through layering of oils and using a variety of media to complete her finished work. Through this process the painting it’s self takes on a life of it’s own allowing the viewer to step into the painting and start a visual journey with the artist. With Meltems ability to use different media for different subjects, her work remains as fresh as when her work was first seen and continues to evolve constantly from where she started her journey into art.
