Danny Quillin

web sized danny quillin 2Danny was born and raised in southeastern Missouri. Despite being in an area with very little art culture, he was still heavily drawn to artistic endeavors. He continued showing a talent for creative processes and was always drawing. Joining the Navy after high school fueled his quest and increased his ambition. He used his travels to see great collections of art around the world. He found inspiration from great portraitists such as Rembrandt, John Singer Sargent and Anders Zorn.
After his service obligation ended, he decided to pursue his interest in fine art. He began his studies at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, CA. Soon after, he was accepted into the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA. There he focused on traditional mediums and atelier style training with established artists in the Philadelphia area.
Danny continues to keep an active studio in the Marshall, IL area. He receives many commissions for portraits and enjoys landscape painting outdoors. Contact Danny for more information or if interested in a studio visit please call (757) 705-7892.
