Finnie grew up in Vermont surrounded by an extended family of artists.
Torn between a career in marine biology and art she decided to study at UVM, achieving a BS in Art Education.
Her teaching has taken her to public and private schools in New England. Her travels in Africa and Europe inspired her work and took her through an interesting creative process that has manifested in some unique work.
Finnie’s work is reflective of the world she sees every day. She finds inspiration, comfort and influence in the natural world and her outdoor life, which you can see reflected in her painting. She currently lives in Pomfret, VT with her husband and two young children.
