Chris Chapman

Born in Southern California, Chris Chapman molded her art livelihood after studies at U of Oregon, UC Santa Barbara, and Santa Barbara Community College. 

Combining conservation with art, for 13 years she and painter husband lived and painted on the Gaviota Coast while teaching art classes at Santa Barbara Community College.  Since 2014 they relocated to nearby Santa Ynez Valley where Chris is active with the Wildling Museum.  The Gaviota Coast and Eastern Sierra Nevada are enduring favorite subjects.

Chris is a member of the Oak Group, a small but auspicious group of preservation minded painters formed in 1986.  Since then, their sales of $3 Million have benefited non-profit environmental organizations for protection of open space in four California counties.  Her Chumash Ethnobotany illustrations led to a permanent installation in the Chumash Hall of Ventura Art Museum. She is a Signature Member of several national pastel societies and Honorary Lifetime Member of Santa Barbara Art Association.

Each giclee print donated has been printed on high-quality 23mil cotton art paper and signed by Chris at her home on the central coast.
