About Me


Hello! My name is Patsy H. Parker. I live in northern California, am married, and have two children who are grown now.

I paint with watercolors and acrylics, draw with graphite, and pen & ink.

I have been growing over the last few years as an artist. I love drawing and painting a variety of animals, especially sea turtles. I also draw and paint flowers, “gothic” ballerinas, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

Since January of 2019, I have been learning about and creating mixed media which I am really enjoying. I have been taking online classes with Miriam Schulman at http://schulmanart.com.

I am also a writer. I have recently had an article called “Dragons Down Under” published in a children’s magazine called Skipping Stones.

I would love to hear comments from fellow artists and anyone interested in any other topic on my blog. I enjoy viewing all kinds of art that others create and reading other blogs.

I hope you enjoy my blog. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I have been admiring your art work. Have you ever thought of finding a children’s book author and doing the artwork? Your drawings are spectacular!

    • Thank you! Yes, I even took a course for learning the whole process, but then I had severe pain in my right shoulder, had rotator cuff surgery, and recently had to have cararact surgery, lol! So…I haven’t had the energy to pursue it.


  2. So lovely to get to know about your creative process and you as an artist.
