Iris Williams has a rich connection to the community of Ojai. Her Paternal Grandparents came to Ojai in 1922 looking for a better life. Her family has called Ojai home ever since.
From the first time she felt the finger paint squishing between her fingers she knew she wanted to be an artist. She considers oil painting her favorite medium but is also known for her mosaic work, as well as Paper Mache.
Iris graduated from Nordhoff in 1974. Art was what got her through school. She studied with Sharon Butler for many years and then went on to teach art to kids when Sharon sold her Art workshop to Janis Hansen. Iris is currently studying with Carlos Grasso.
Iris’ work is stunning, and in her own words “whimsical”. Who could resist having a copy of one of these, among others.
