About Iris Scott
Iris Scott (b.1984) is a finger painting artist based in New York City, Brooklyn. Her color saturated canvases burst with movement, a result of her own unique form of textural Impressionism. And she does this all without using a brush! “There’s nothing between me and the paint and I feel all the tiny nuances. I can manipulate thick paint with my fingers in ways brushes never could.” Iris takes a Maximalist approach with her paint-heavy finger painting technique and rainbow of pigments. She often incorporates over 100 different oil colors into a single scene. Her paintings portray a dreamy yet dynamic world – a heightened, more lush version of reality. “I want my paintings to be both an escape from our everyday life, and an intensification of the recognizable.”
Whether she is painting landscapes, an urban scene, a figurative piece, or her trademark shaking dogs, Iris’ large body of work is a celebration of all that is wild. Iris grew up in the Pacific Northwest Rainforest near Seattle and spent her childhood playing in and exploring the craggy, untamed terrain. “There’s a denseness to those woods that has stayed with me. The trees were draped in moss, and play days were drenched with rain, animal and plant life blooming from every nook.” Her paintings of flora and fauna emphasize what is dazzling, arresting, and even overwhelming about the natural world.
Iris’ advancement of finger painting has changed the public’s perception of this technique and what can be achieved with it. Iris has been featured in Forbes, Barron’s, Business Insider, USA Today, NowThis, CBS New York, and American Art Collector Magazine. Her oil finger painted originals hang in 4 U.S. galleries, and corporate collectors include Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Children’s Hospital, and Swedish Medical Centers. Iris has blazed a truly unique trail in the art world, and is passionate about sharing her art form with Facebook and Instagram fans. Her book Finger Painting Weekend Workshop hit stores in 2016, and guides people of all levels through Impressionistic finger painting. Although she is already booked for 2017 commissions, contact us to add your interest to the list for a custom painting in 2018. Iris Scott finger paintings hang in private, public and corporate collections worldwide.
