A native of California, Kathy Parkinson received an undergraduate degree in Art and Design from UC Davis and an MA in Art from UCLA. Her love of color and pattern, so much a part of the environment she grew up in, has been a integral part of her work ever since. In 1980 she moved to the Boston area. While raising three children, Kathy worked part time illustrating books for young people and developing her decorative painting skills. For several years, she taught Decorative Painting classes at The Kendall Center for the Arts in Belmont, MA. Now Kathy enjoys working out of her studio using the interplay of color, pattern, and imagery to create floor cloths, murals, faux finishes, and painted furniture for individual clients. Her feeling is that life is short... why not live it surrounded by color!
