Mister Finch’s Fairytale Fantasies

Tea making spider

Mister Finch, from Yorkshire, has no formal training. After years of attempting different medium, he found a love of sewing. His main inspirations come from nature, such as flowers, insects and birds. He draws from the wealth of fabulous and beautiful British folklore rich with morals and warnings, such as “shape shifting witches, moon gazing hares and a smartly dressed devil ready to invite you to stray from the path.” His ability to humanize animals, adding shoes and clothes, makes them come alive.
Finch uses recycled materials, not only as an ethical statement, but to add more authenticity and charm to his work. “Velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts looking for new adventures. A story sewn in is a story woven.”
