Facebook Find... Mister Finch

I found Mister Finch via a link on a friends Facebook likes section and Oooooo how I love his work. I just had to put it up on the blog for you all to see.

Mister Finch is from Leeds in the UK. I think his work is imaginative and beautiful. He is quite evidently interested in and influenced by nature, but his works have a fantasy quality too and I think it is that which attracts me to them so much. He describes himself as "a self taught male textile artist", and I think Textile Art is a great term for what he makes. His mixture of vintage and modern fabrics interests me, as well as his use of textures. I like the tea wash he puts on the pieces to age them. The effect reminds me of the pieces of vintage linen that I have inherited from my Welsh Grand Mother.








You can find more of Mister Finch's work on his website, Etsy, Facebook, Tumblr and Flickr. It really is worth a look.
