Paul Finn

"I studied Fine Art at Ravensbourne College of Art and then went on to do the postgraduate Fine Art course at the Slade.  After this I was appointed Brinkley Fellow at Norwich School of Art.

"My work tries to evoke my joy, feelings and sensations towards particular places in Italy, France and the United Kingdom.  My paintings and prints attempt to find the atmosphere, structure, shape, colour and pattern of these places, filtered through my personality and through the processes of constructing an image."
