When commenting about the artist, it is not adequate to list the oils, acrylics, encaustic paints and inks she uses as multimedia painter and printmaker. The process of putting these materials together is a deeply personal expression.

Iris's inspiration springs from living in the San Joaquin Valley of California. Her appreciation for the bounty of natural beauty in the forested mountains of granite, the rivers, streams, waterfall, vast lush green fields, blossoming orchards and mix of ethnicities and cultures, nourishes Iris's artistic exploration and creativity.

She shares the spontaneity of the moment through color, resonance and a fresh perspective that is complex and uniquely her own.
