Benjamin Finn is a stained glass artist living in Essex and he has a studio in the 12th-century church of Wickham Bishops. He has specialised in figurative work, mainly for churches, but has also made decorative and abstract work and has pieces in private collections.

Benjamin originally studied Marine Biology at undergraduate level and subsequently undertook a post-graduate diploma in stained glass at Central School of Art. He was awarded the Caroline Swash Fellowship and remained there for a extra year both studying and assisting the teaching.

His output is extremely varied as a result of the wide range of commission briefs he has been offered. His work is noted for the fine painting techniques and his use of many different types of lettering, along with a strongly individual colour sense. Benjamin has work in many churches among which are the Millennium Window in The Gary Weston Library at Southwark Cathedral and The Archdeaconry of Harlow Seal in Chelmsford Cathedral.
