Finn is a painter who also works with textiles. All of her work is
created in her studio in Oak Grove, Oregon.Her work manifests out of her desire to escape
consumerism and mass fabrication and create something personal, useful, and
beautiful with her own hands. She loves flowers, the irregularity of
handmade items, using up odds and ends, used or worn items, and values the
slow process of making something by hand.
she is working on oil-based daily paintings of flower bouquets and contemporary
embroidered paintings. She also makes embroidered band posters,
autobiographical renderings using thread and fabric, hand-sewn quilts, freeform
knit and crochet wearable art, and redesigns clothing.

musician Patrick Finn, and her teenage daughter.
