Finger painting is now fine art at the hands of New York based artist Iris Scott. Using her fingertips to strike multiple colors at a time she is like a pianist that understands piano is not to be played one note at a time. Iris Scott was classically trained in Florence, Italy and earned her BFA from Washington State University in 2006. Iris began oil finger painting in 2009 when she left the States to live a year in Taiwan. By a stroke of lucky laziness one afternoon when it was too hot outside, Iris opted not to pause on her painting to go clean brushes. It was in this moment the technique was discovered. A few swipes of paint with her fingertips and Iris found a new impressionistic style. She has not used a brush since, and has enjoyed painting full time since 2010. Iris is represented by Cole Gallery in Seattle as well as Adelman Fine Art in San Diego.
