My name is Jhanée Finlayson and I am a Bahamian based in Florence. I am a graduate of Polimoda with a Master’s degree in Creative Direction. It is an intensive program that focuses on marketing, communication, design principles, event planning, brand architecture and trend forecasting. I also had the privilege to be mentored by the former Global Creative Director of Puma, Torsten Hochstetter. I have a background in Fine Art. In 2018 I graduated from Leeds Arts University with a Bachelor’s (Hons.) degree in Fine Art with a specialization in painting. After receiving this degree, I’ve worked as the assistant of the director of the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, Amanda Coulson and the studio assistant of Bahamian artist, Sue Bennett Williams.
