AMY JANE FINLAYSON

MISS FINLAYSON IS A LOVER WITH A DEEP AFFECTION FOR AVOCADOS. IN GOOD TASTE SHE NAMES TAMAR DE LEMPICKA ONE OF HER FAVOURITE ARTISTS AND TALKS TO US ABOUT SHOOTING WITH STEVEN MEISEL, HER UPCOMING ART COLLABORATION, AND A NEW ONLINE PLATFORM SHE IS ABOUT TO LAUNCH FOR CREATIVE INDIVIDUALS SUCH AS HERSELF.



Right now i am... HUSTLING. 

My full name is... AMY JANE FINLAYSON. 

My star sign is… CAPRICORN. 

In my free time… EAT. PAINT. LOVE.

The reason why i started a blog is... TO HAVE SOME CREATIVE CONTROL IN AN INDUSTRY THAT LOVES TO DO WHATEVER IT WANTS WITH YOU.

My favourite artist... THIS IS A TOUGH ONE. IT CHANGES CONSTANTLY BUT I LOVE MY POWERFUL WOMEN- QUENTIN JONES, TRACEY EMIN, AUREL SCHMIDT, MARILYN MINTER, TAMRA DE LEMPICKA.

My most exciting collaboration to date... MY FIRST SHOW! A COLLABORATION VERY CLOSE TO MY HEART WITH MY AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER FRIEND MICK BRUZZESE. ART MEETS PHOTOGRAPHY IN A VISUALLY EXCEPTIONAL EXHIBITION COMING SOON!

and coming up... I AM STARTING A SITE WITH A FRIEND OF MINE CALLED NAVY STUDIOS. IT'S A VESSEL FOR EXPRESSION. A DIGITAL PLATFORM FOR CONTRIBUTOR INPUT BUILT TO SHOWCASE CREATIVITY. IT'S NOT AN ONLINE MAG, IT'S A SITE THAT ALLOWS ITS CONTRIBUTORS AND COLLABORATORS TO WORK ON PROJECTS TOGETHER AND SHOW THEM TO THE WORLD. WE ARE CREATING A NEW VOLUME, NEW MOMENTS, NEW CREATIVE MINDS AND NEW WAYS OF THINKING ALL BROUGHT TO YOU BY NAVY STUDIOS. ONLINE VERY SOON! 

The first thing i do when i wake up is… MAKE THE BED

My favourite food to eat is… VEGETARIAN

If I were hosting a dinner party… I WOULD REMEMBER THE BASICS- GOOD FOOD, GOOD COMPANY, GOOD WINE, GOOD MUSIC. 

My guests would be… MY BEST FRIENDS. 

I wish a dressed like… I KEEP VERY STYLISH COMPANY SO THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ANSWER.

The most influential person in my life is… MY PARENTS. THEY PUSH ME TO ALWAYS BE MY BEST. CLICHE BUT TRUE.

My biggest achievement to date… HOLDING A MODELING CAREER FOR OVER 10 YEARS. AND THIS YEAR I WILL BE ABLE TO SAY I HAVE DONE THAT PLUS GRADUATE FROM UNIVERSITY AND HAVE MY FIRST ART EXHIBITION.

I can not live with out… AVOCADOS. AND LOVE. AND HUGS. I AM A VERY CLINGY PERSON. MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE SAID LOVE FIRST.

My idea of happiness is… 
AVOCADO ON TOAST, A GOOD LATTE AND A BEAUTIFUL LOVER.

I am the most comfortable… 
WHEN I AM WITH HIM.

People don't know i… PICK MY NOSE. NO NOT REALLY...BUT HOW WOULD YOU KNOW? I BET PEOPLE DON'T KNOW I AM A DIE HARD RAP AND R&B FAN. I AM LISTENING TO 'NUCK IF YOU BUCK' BY CRIME MOBB RIGHT NOW. 

My favourite designers are… COMFORTABLE ONES. ELLERY, JAC AND JACK, WANG, MUI MUI, MARANT, SCANLAN AND THEODORE, ZARA, TOPSHOP. 

The best purchase i ever made was… PLANE TICKETS TO PLACES I LOVE.

My favourite city in the would is… NEW YORK CITY. ALWAYS WILL BE. I GREW UP THERE- FROM A TEEN TO AN ADULT AN THAT TIME WILL ALWAYS BE SACRED TO ME.

If I was an animal I would be… A STUBBORN MOUNTAIN GOAT 

Currently I am really into… SOLID MARKER PAINT PENS

My favourite concert I ever saw was… MYSTERY JETS AND THE KOOKS IN PARIS FROM BACKSTAGE.

My funniest drunk experience would have to be… CAN'T REMEMBER
