Although Finela's work is varied in style and subject, it is always recognisable by it's unique characteristics. These include: Her enjoyment of textures and willingness to experiment with a mix of media: A devotion to "the essential paradox of life and everything", with a careful balance of chaos and order, design and happenstance; A lustrous, rich and meticulous finish, weather the work is a simple drawing, a traditional oil or acrylic, or even a constellation including driftwood or shaped metal . She likes to make artistic statements that are bold and accessable, yet subtle and understated. She imbues simple subjects with a life and vitality all of their own, each piece of work reflecting her own personal mission statement and devotion to the arts
