ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hey y'all! I’m Parker. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world. I’m glad you’re here!

​

Born and raised in Valdosta, Georgia, I’ve been painting and creating since I was little and have always loved to have a paintbrush in my hand.

​

I enjoy painting an array of subjects – from florals and abstracts to bottles and landscapes. My work has been described as Southern with an edge – filled with vibrant colors, bold strokes and lively shapes.

​

The inspiration behind my paintings comes from all around - from my travels, daily life & experiences, my family & friends and growing up in the South.

​

I love creating and the outlet art gives. For me, there is something so cathartic about a blank canvas - you never know where the colors will lead you or how the pieces will fall together. It’s amazing to look back at where a piece began to where it is when it’s finished. ​

The “ugly” layers in between the beginning and the end are always some my favorites. That’s where the magic happens and you really grow as an artist. I think that applies a lot in life too.

My favorite color has always been turquoise – you will see pops of it throughout my work!​ In every piece, I hope you can see (and feel) the happiness, contentment and joy I get when I’m in the studio.

I now live in Atlanta, Georgia where you can find me in my home studio with my pup, River, still with a paintbrush in hand, listening to a true crime podcast and sipping on a tequila-soda (with two limes).

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that

I would not have a single bit

of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
