I create with colored resin. I mix paint, and in this case, walnut ink, into resin and paint with the resulting thick colored resin. The result flows, moves, blends in fun and interesting ways, as in this piece. Refraction seems to refract light. The light color at the bottom is pearlescent, which is both soothing and shiny, like a pearl.
For Patricia Finley, life, as the act of creating art, isn't a cool or impersonal pursuit. It's in-the-moment. All or nothing. As her entire life will attest. Born in Iowa, an alumna of Arizona State University, Patricia's professional life was dedicated to a successful trial law practice. Following a move to Colorado, her longtime love of art became an overwhelming passion. After initially pursuing an affinity for works on paper, curiosity drove her to resin and pigment. And from first touch, there was no turning back. An award-winning artist in a unique and challenging medium, Patricia has participated in numerous group, duo and solo shows. Her art can be found in collections from Alaska to Boston, from Australia to England. Recently her pieces were featured on the DIY Network's "Raise the Roof" series.
