Chris Chapman 

Chris Chapman is a California artist known for her landscape paintings and native botanicals. Primarily self-taught, she works in watercolors, gouache, oils, and pastels.

Born in Pasadena in 1950, her bonds with nature and creative expression were forged early. After studies at University of Oregon, UC Santa Barbara, and Santa Barbara Community College, her artistic livelihood was realized.

Combining conservation with art, Chris and husband John Iwerks lived and painted on the Gaviota Coast from 2000 to 2013. As the first preserve managers at Arroyo Hondo Preserve they made lasting contributions while also teaching art classes at Santa Barbara Community College. Now Chris and John live and paint nearby in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley.

Chris is a member of the Oak Group, a Santa Barbara based group of preservation minded painters formed in 1986. Her work is featured in permanent installations and collections at Ventura County Art Museum, Wildling Museum of Art & Nature, University of CA Santa Barbara Sedgwick Reserve, Arroyo Hondo Preserve, and Descanso Botanic Gardens. She is a Signature Member of several national pastel societies and Honorary Lifetime Member of Santa Barbara Art Association.
