Iris loves painting murals, which allow her to live for a time in the world she’s creating. Iris works in a wide variety of styles, from a naive or primitive approach, like Rufus Porter, to the subtle richness of the great painters of Europe such as Canaletto, to a graceful chinoiserie. Iris prefers painting murals on canvas, which is then applied like wallpaper. Canvas enhances the mural, giving it a nice light texture; it keeps the painting safe from cracks in the wall; and it also can be detached and moved along with the client if necessary.
