Art & Artists at The Jasper: Anne Darby Parker
About the artist:
Charleston native and celebrated painter, Anne Darby Parker, has spent her lifetime “creating.” Her talent and curiosity were sparked as a child, knitting at the knee of her mother, and an early career in photography evolved into further artistic study, revealing a passion for painting. Along her journey, Parker has consistently continued to build her skills in the visual arts. She is currently pursuing her MFA at Academy of Art University.
Parker practices painting daily in her Sullivan’s Island studio, en plein air and in weekly figurative sessions. Her influences include a variety of artists and genres, and the intent of her work is to discover extraordinary elements within the everyday. Parker is active in the local arts community as a member of the Charleston Artist Collective and founder of the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry. She and her husband, urban planner, Scott Parker, have three children.
Anne’s work can be found at Charleston Artists Collective. Follow Anne Darby Parker on her artistic journey on Instagram @annespaintings.
