Iris Scott (b.1984) is a finger painting artist, and the worldʼs leader of this exciting new revolution in oil painting.
Her official website is http://www.irisscottfineart.com/
Over 100,000 fans follow her work on social media: www.Facebook.com/irisfingerpaintings and
She wears surgical gloves, and owns over 100 different colors of oils which she squeezes directly onto her finger tips and then applies to the canvas.
Iris is not the first artist to finger paint, but she is the first to be an exclusive finger painter. No artist in history has ever taken finger painting this far.
Her unorthodox way of oil painting has started a movement of people worldwide to try finger painting as adults. She has a free instructional video on her website http://www.irisscottfineart.com/video- workshops
Her book Finger Painting Weekend Workshop (Available on Amazon) helps beginners dive into this therapeutic way of making art.
Her originals sell between $7 and $30k, depending on size. She has been a full time artist since 2011 and now lives in Brooklyn NY. Not everyone can afford originals so Iris is happy to also make available affordable canvas and paper prints, which can be found under each image on her website by clicking the “buy prints” button.
Iris Scott prints are so popular that she she is the best selling licensed artist on iCanvas.com
Iris supplies her four US galleries with original finger paintings on canvas year-round. The galleries are located in San Francisco, San Diego, Jackson WY, and Aspen CO.
Her corporate clients have included Microsoft, CocaCola, and Childrenʼs Hospital.
Iris began finger painting in 2010, when she ran out of clean brushes and didnʼt want to pause her painting to go clean up. Finger painting proved more tactile and Iris was astounded to discover in 2010 that no artist had yet thrown themselves into just painting with fingertips.
Prior to finger painting as a career, Iris dabbled in every medium she could get her hands on. Her early years and college years were spent studying fundamental skills, including realistic oil brush painting.
Finger painting has advantages over paint brushes: clean up is swift and easy, now she can switch colors quickly. Paint brushes have bristles which are difficult to clean, but paint comes right off of gloved hands with a paper towel. Also with five points of contact rather than one, Iris can paint five times faster than when she used to use brushes. Scooping paint and carving thick oil also proves less difficult with fingertips because the sensitivity of a finger is finer than a paint brush. “I can feel all the tiny nuanced of the paint,” says Iris.
Education: Iris studied art in college, earning a BFA from Washington State University. She took one year as a junior to study Renaissance Masters in Florence Italy at a small Art/Fashion school called Academia Italiana.
Irisʼ main artistic role models have been: Monet, Sargent, Van Gogh, Picasso, Khalo, Dali, and Sorolla.
Iris chooses to live in New York so she has access to the best art museums in the country. She is passionate about Egypt and megalithic pyramids. Iris travels several times annually to distant
countries to study ancient art and to see original paintings up close.
Iris grew up outside of Seattle, WA on a small hippie farm with two stay at home parents. Her mother a piano teacher, and her father a cabinet maker. With her younger sister, the family owned countless pets and pairs of farm animals. Irisʼs childhood was quintessential, magical, and imaginative. She was encouraged from an early age to practice her craft like her parents modeled.
