The author

Brooklyn-based painter Iris Scott is the only fine-art oil finger painter working today. She earned a BFA in Painting and a MA in Teaching, and studied painting in Florence. During a year spent backpacking in Southern Taiwan, Iris stumbled upon finger painting by accident and has not picked up a paintbrush since. Her Facebook following is over 25,000 fans and growing. Currently, her finger-painting originals hang in Philadelphia, Seattle, San Diego, and Jackson Hole. Collectors from around the world buy her originals, and there are daily orders for her prints. Scott's most iconic painting, Shakin' Off the Blues, has gone viral several times, including on Reddit, where it captured nearly 2 million hits and counting.

Iris is spearheading a revolution with this timelessly accessible technique that leaves the brushes behind in order to let grown-ups reconnect with their inner child. Her students walk away from her finger-painting courses with something classically beautiful to hang on their walls.
