My name is Frances (Fran) Sabia, my art signature is āCollieā. 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 āhanging artistā. Come visit our gallery. See
what we have to offer.
