In 2009 while living abroad, artist Iris Scott underwent a stroke of lucky laziness one afternoon when it was too hot outside. Scott opted not to pause on her painting to go clean brushes, deciding to use her fingers instead. It was this serendipitous moment that a new technique was discovered and would change the course of her artistic career.
After a few swipes of paint with her fingertips, Iris had discovered her own impressionistic style and she has not used a brush since. A full-time painter since 2010, Iris is represented by Cole Gallery in Seattle as well as Adelman Fine Art in San Diego.
