Frances Reighley, Vice President

Screen Shot 2018-09-18 at 9.00.33 AMFrances joined SBAA in 2012 and has been volunteering on the Board since July 2016. Frances is best known for her quirky sense of humor that invariably finds its way to the canvas. She grew up in sunny Santa Barbara County, which may explain a few things. Oils are her favored medium, however she mucks around in others as well. She’s had an adventurous trek in the arts, from the first time she laid eyes on a paint-splattered kindergarten easel, all the way up to a Masters in Art Therapy at the University of Louisville. Frances retired after sixteen years of teaching others the therapeutic value of art. Thirteen of those years were spent working with seniors, some of whom had never – in their 80+ years – dabbled in the arts. Frances is also a member of the Goleta Valley Art Association. She lives and plays daily in Goleta with her husband Mike and their frisky Labradoodle Kayden.
