Mandi Quinn
Student and Faculty


How did you first get involved with ASLD and when?
My family would attend the Summer Art Market when my sister and I were young and we loved to ogle at all of the different kinds of art.  But, I regrettably never took any classes at the league until I became a member of the ASLD Registration Staff.  Now, I can’t stop.

How has ASLD shaped you as an artist?
As an insatiable learner, the ASLD is a perfect fit for me.  Although I’m mainly a printmaker, I love finding new mediums to exhibit my ideas and often working in new ways informs my art.

What faculty members have you taken courses with as ASLD?
I have been a student of Vicky Smith, Jack Heimerman, Will Dickinson, Jackie Smith, and Cathy Avram.

What do you like about the ASLD community?
I’m so grateful for the community that ASLD has built.  Being able to share skills, ideas and stories with artistic peers is something I’ll never take for granted, especially emerging from quarantine.
