Quinque: Five Show Off at the Foxlowe

We are a group of five local artists living in South Cheshire/North Staffordshire. We formed in 2009, naming ourselves QuinQue, derived from the Latin word for five.

When we first began to create art as a group, we set group tasks and worked on the same subject matter, but over time, as we developed, we found our own pathways, each drawn towards different subject matter and different mediums.

Patricia started specialising in botanical drawings and became a member of the Royal Society of Botanical artists.

Maggie and Barbara became interested in various forms of printmaking but especially reduction linocutting and are founder members of Linocut Friends on Facebook. It now has over twenty two thousand members globally.

Jackie and Barbara have a passion for watercolour and continue to wrestle with this very difficult medium, experiencing great joy when work goes well.

Sue, Maggie and Jackie had chosen acrylic as a preferred medium until more recently when they became very interested in pursuing oils.

Through personal growth, our work has become quite varied, but our story as a group gives us a cohesion, a unity and a unique story. We have become increasingly aware of how personal art is, how tastes differ dramatically between individuals and we feel that, collectively, we can offer something of interest to everyone.
