ļ»æ Fran Sabia Spring River Artists Guild Spring River Artists Guild
My name is Frances (Fran) Sabia, my art signature is ā€œCollieā€.  I first became interested in art during my school years.  Then I graduated, got married, had childrenā€¦.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 ā€œhanging artistā€.  Come visit our gallery.  See what we have to offer.
