So, what do I love most about Mister Finch? Perhaps it is his quiet working away in his studio, like a puppet maker. Perhaps it is the stories tied tight in the minds of his sleeping creatures. Perhaps it is the way he walks towards a darker dreaming but always with beauty. Perhaps it is his ability to give away nothing about himself while sharing not only his work but the work of people who make him smile. His generosity of mind and spirit. Perhaps. Swans, hares, foxes, dreaming, moths. We have much in common and yet so different.--Jackie Morris, Jackie Morris Blog "April 3, 2015 "

Mister Finch, is an exquisite craftsman and textile artist living in Yorkshire England. Aside from a single art class he took years ago, Mister Finch is entirely self-taught, having discovered his passion for sewing after dabbling in a number of different media.

He works alone in his cosy, plant-filled studio, sewing each inimitable piece by hand, not far from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
