Iris Sabre's work is rooted in a belief in the restorative powers of nature - the ability of nature to provide sanctuary and solace in troubled times. As a plein air painter she communicates the joy and beauty of the natural world in her painting. She completes her large format paintings in oil, working rapidly and using bold strokes and vivid colors.
Born and raised in San Francisco, she received her bachelor's degree in painting at SF State University, as well as two teaching credentials, Multiple Subjects and Fine Arts. She continues to take workshops and has studied with local painters Randall Sexton, Pam Glover, and Van Waldron. A member of the California Art Club, her work is also shown at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery in San Francisco and at the Marin Society of Artists Gallery in San Rafael.
The collection will be on display June 4th through June 27th. Iris will be in the gallery 12-6 pm Saturday, June 5th and Sunday, June 6th to welcome old friends and make new ones.
