    Biography

     

    Patricia J Finley is an American painter who has sold her work internationally. She was a successful lawyer before turning to full-time art, and today focuses on using pigment and ink mixed into resin to compose intense, lively works.  Her landscapes and seascapes burst with color and shine from resin's polish.  Her work exhibits a complexity between the apparently simple surface and what lies beneath it: the power of every shape and curve to immerse the viewer in visceral scenes.

     

    Abstract Resin Artist

    « I love the challenge of creating beauty by both bending this difficult medium to my will and by relaxing into the flow and allowing the medium to drive the process and the result. »
     I create with paint, pigment and ink mixed into resin.  Resin’s extraordinary possibilities are exactly why I chose the challenge of creating with this unruly medium.  Each piece reveals the reason that I create with resin.  Complexity is revealed under the deceptively simple surface with startling clarity.  Color leaps out from under resin's cool surface, magnified with a jewel-like intensity.  Shapes seem to move. 

               My art stays alive on the wall, presenting nearly endless possibilities for discovery.
