BIO

Quinn Keck is a multidisciplinary artist working across traditional and digital mediums.  Trained in painting and printmaking, Quinn also combines writing and code in their work and hosted poetry open mics at their openings.  Instead of portraying the physical form of people, places and themselves, Quinn portrays their inner layers and dimensions through abstractions.      

 

Their work has been displayed across the United States, and they have an upcoming printmaking residency with Kala Arts.  They hold a Bachelor's in Studio Art and Human Rights from Hampshire College and a Masters of Data Science from the University of San Francisco.
