Jeanie Finlay makes work from a variety of mediums but predominantly utilises digital media.

She frequently works in collaboration with members of the public, gathering opinions and stories through interviews and online-questionnaires which feed directly into the creation of new work.

Often exploring emotive themes, her recent work has examined beauty, the home and love with passionate, personal and humorous results.

Finlay set up the artist-led organiation Ruby Digital Arts and Design in 1996 to initiate new projects and collaborate with artists and partner organisations.

The commercial arm of Ruby creates exciting and vibrant digital design for printed graphics and the web.
