ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Lurking out of SF CA, Finn has passed the last five years orchestrating chaos in classic and digital illustration. She spent her student years at UC Berkeley studying Psychology and Medieval History - which she now imparts to her miniature monster friends that she makes with needle, and thread, and pins, and knives. Fuzzy goons one and all, they make up Finn’s fine reverie: XOF.  Finn’s inspiration comes from a hurricane of bluegrass, old surf rock, Cash, and 60s bubblegum pop, Murakami books and medieval lit, spaghetti westerns and Tombstone, gangster flicks and Tarantino films, cats and their mysterious ways, black licorice, and midnight haunts in ghost-towns; she is mesmerized by anatomy and the flexing of skeletal complexities. Finn has found ways to mingle this macabre into the danses of local companies (Big or Bigger, SnackYums, Mötus Oakland Radio), interested private parties, burgeoning bands (GHXST NY), and multiple polkas for Google Inc. Finn’s artwork is displayed in local jewelry/curiosity store Fiat Lux SF, and vended from her own bizarre lair in the heart of the Mission.
