Parker is a water colorist whose paintings reflect a love of both New England and the islands of the Caribbean.
In addition to his fine art water colors, his many faceted talents include large murals, wall graphics and
carved and gilded signs. His formal art education is from the Portlnd
School of art, and early in his career he taught at the Governor
Baxter School for the deaf. As a student he enjoyed such
artists' guidance as Andrew Wyeth, Lawrence Sisson
and John Muench. Originally from Monson, Maine,
he spent "many seasons" in Carrabassett
Valley, and then relocated to the Virgin
Islands where he enjoys capturing
the vivid island colors in his work.
He currently divides his time
between Maine in the
summer months and
Port Orange, Fla.
during the winter.
