Coastal creative and development officer, Clean Coasts
Beckey-Finn is the creator of Bexter Productions, a coastal digital media company, and Clean Coasts development officer for Donegal and Leitrim. Having grown up in a house near the sea full of surfers and art, it was inevitable that she would have “saltwater in the veins and circles in the brain”, as she puts it.
Since graduating from IT Blanchardstown in 2013, she has been putting her creative digital media skills to work for the coast and organisations, undertaking work in the field of wellbeing as well as with the likes of artist co-ops. She joined the Clean Coasts team in An Taisce’s Environmental Education Unit in 2014 and works to protect Ireland’s beaches, seas and marine life through this grassroots and community-led programme.
When not working, she spends her time connecting with the sea, breathing in salty air, taking adrenaline trips across waves on her longboard, using elements of nature in her crochet blankets or sharing her musings on the world through her new website, originallamby.com.
