About Sheila Finch
Address and work:
Artist Introduction

“I began painting as a child, studying studio painting with regional artist Gene Woods. By the time I was sixteen, I was earning a steady income from the sale of my paintings. Over the past 45 years, my images have evolved into somewhat abstracted landscapes. I begin with a visual memory, sometimes using a photo or an en-plein-air painting sketch as reference.


My intention is to allow the painting to evolve through the build up of thin films of translucent color. As the painting progresses, I add more motion, blending, value changes, and rhythm to the brushwork.I tend to lose my sense of self, and the painting ‘tells’ me what is required in order to capture the mood. I know a painting is complete when it takes on a luminous quality of light and color...a life of its own.”Finch's paintings are collected worldwide, and have most recently been acquired for thepermanent collection of the Carnegie Foundation at Stanford in Palo Alto, California.
