Iris Bourne's work is based on abstraction and she works in a variety of mediums including acrylics, industrial materials, and cement sculpting with stainless steel. Her passion for color on the canvas results in a powerful expression of life and beauty.
First generation Canadian Italian, Iris was born and raised in Canada. She studied languages in France and Italy, and after obtaining a teaching degree, moved to California with her family and started taking art classes at the Brentwood Art Center in Santa Monica.
Since living in Laguna her work has become representative of life by the Ocean. Her current Ocean Series is very organic and watery with a buddhist clarity reflecting her spiritual side that is forever evolving.
