Quinlisk creates her artwork using mosaic glass on top of acrylic paint. She creates the painting first, then adds the glass on top of the dried painting. Each piece of glass is hand cut. The cut pieces are used to create a mosaic and are adhered to the painting using a heavy gloss medium. Quinlisk says her paintings can look very different throughout the day depending on how the light hits the glass. There are times when Quinlisk is in the throes of painting and the pain of arthritis suddenly interrupts and for a time, the potential and promise of a new picture falls prey to her disease. “My arthritis may limit the duration of time I paint but it does not compromise the beauty and joy of what I create.”
