Born and raised in Vermont, Parker feels most at home in the outdoors.
Her connection and love of the natural world inspires much of her work. Her current paintings explore the junction between civilization and wilderness and the interplay of man-made structures with their enduring natural environments.
She works to communicate the variety of nature in shape, color, texture, and attitude, and to capture the energy that is not visible at first but can be found in all things, if observed carefully. This show includes gouache works depicting scenes from Texas as well as Vermont.
