Finnllow? I'm most passionate about my two dogs, Finnegan (Brittany) + Willow (Long-Haired Weimaraner) and together they are Finnllow / FINN+LLOW (pronounced Fin-Low). My life revolves around them, so they were the inspiration to create a username that would eventually become my brand name.
I'm a native of the best-shaped State, Michigan. I was born and raised in The Motor City and currently live in Macomb Township, about 35-miles northwest of downtown Detroit. Growing up in Detroit, I was close enough to Canada to tune in to CBC on Channel 9 and watched Mr. Dressup every day. If you've read this far, yes, this is why my first dog is named Finnegan.
I really should get back to abstract painting.
So, when I'm not posting pictures of Finnegan & Willow to Instagram, there's a good chance I'm letting them outside or back in, or out and in and back out and back in again, poop-smithing the yard, wiping their muddy paws, doing a load of laundry of dog towels... or letting them out and back in again. I also try my hand at home improvements whenever possible, often several times before I get it right or giving up completely and hiring a professional. I enjoy cycling local trails and parks (though it’s been waaaaay too long), and walking my dogs. Most importantly, I want to be the kind of person my dogs think I am.
