Matthew Finger, Providence, Rhode Island Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement My name is Matthew Finger. I am an Artist and illustrator living in Providence, RI. Since graduating from the Rhode island School of Design in 1991, I have had the fortune to work as an illustrator in numerous areas such as educational publishing and advertising. I am currently working on a line of kid friendly decorative items such as light switch plates and night lights. In my work I hope to convey the sense of wonder and joy that children experience.
