Quinn McDonald wanted to be an obedient, dutiful wife and patient mother, but she was born at the wrong time. She became a writer—in ad agencies, in corporations, at a newspaper. Traveled all over the world. Took notes. There was always that restlessness, that raised eyebrow that wouldn’t behave. Then one day, during a performance review, her boss said, “You are different, and seem to enjoy it.” It was not a compliment. The clock on Quinn’s job security ticked to an end.
Quinn is the author of Raw Art Journaling: Making Meaning, Making Art. She also writes the “Business of Art” column forSomerset Studio magazine and “The Raw Edge” coaching column for Art Quilt Studio. She is a regular contributor to Create Mixed Media, F+W Media’s art blog and Jenny Doh’s Good Coach website. When she’s not in the studio, Quinn rides her motorcycle in the amazing landscape of the Sonoran desert.
