My name is Frances (Fran) Sabia, my art signature is “Collie”. I first became interested in art during my school years.
Then I graduated, got married, had children….and life got in the way of my painting. Born in Nebraska,
raising my family in Chicago, and moving to Arkansas has made it possible for me to have a wide variety of subject matter
in country and city life. Visiting my 3 sisters in 3 different states and taking lots of pictures also helps
with subject matter. Fifty years later, I am making my comeback. I am taking more classes and turning
out some pieces. I am a proud member of the Spring River Artists Guild and enjoy working there and playing
with the other artists. I refer to myself as a “hanging artist”. Come visit our gallery. See
what we have to offer.
