Early life and education
Quinlan received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1996 from the School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts. She received her Master of Fine Arts in 2005 from Columbia University.
Quinlan is often regarded as one of many contemporary artists revisiting late Modernism, alongside Tomma Abts, Mark Grotjahn, Wade Guyton, Sergei Jensen, and her husband Cheyney Thompson. Also she is considered one of several contemporary photographers — among them Michele Abeles, Liz Deschenes and Sara VanDerBeek — who are extending the innovations of the earlier Pictures Generation into new territory.
Quinlan uses medium and large format analog cameras to create abstract photographs, and then agitates the film via steel wool or long chemical processing. Some of her photographic subjects are smoke, mirrors, mylar, colored lights, and other photographs. The result is photographic images that are reminiscent of color field painting and op art thus furthering the contemporary conversation between photography and painting. Her political leanings, boundary pushing processes and resulting images are part of why Quilan has gained notoriety in exhibitions such as ""What is a Photograph?"" curated by Carol Squiers in 2014 at the International Center for Photography in New York City, New York and ""Outside the Lines: Rites of Spring"" curated by Dean Daderko in 2014 at the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas.

Quinlan is married to Cheyney Thompson, who also exhibits with Andrew Kreps Gallery. They live and work in Brooklyn, New York.
