Dakota Finn’s earliest memories involve drawing - always drawing. His Father still recounts in amazement at his natural ability, even as a young boy, to properly render the human figure. Since early youth, supported by the encouragement of his grandmother who painted beside him, Dakota Finn has engaged in an artistic dialogue with his surroundings. For Dakota, art came naturally. It is a gift. And that gift compels him to be the best Artist he can be. Using color, light and form, his work celebrates the beauty and the poignancy of the seemingly commonplace. Here is an artist who delights in color and shape, whose technique is classically based with a fresh, impressionistic flair, and whose work virtually sings of his personal love affair with life.
