Chris Chapman

Name: Chris Chapman, PSA
Bio: Chris Chapman was born in 1950 in Pasadena, and trained in the University of Oregon and U. Cal. at Santa Barbara. She has taught landscape painting in Santa Barbara City College; and the exacting art of botanical illustration at the Wildling Museum, Los Olivos, Ca., and at Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.
Chris Chapman’s California landscapes are forthright and honest. Chris spent her childhood exploring the foothills and orchards on horseback. While most of her plein air work centres on her Santa Barbara home grounds, Chris ranges farther afield, collecting plants for her botanical work, thus engaging in a closer encounter with the landscape.
Chris is a member of the Oak Group, (as was the late Glenna Hartmann) - a Santa Barbara based group of landscape painters formed in 1986 whence it has raised well over a million dollars to preserve endangered environments and her work is included in a feature about the Oak Group in American Artist Plein Air Issue, Fall 2011. She is an Honorary Lifetime Member of the Santa Barbara Art Association, a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, and member of American Society of Botanical Artists.
