Lisa Parrish Parker and Anne Roscher Parks are two very different artists. Lisa's exhibit at Tippecanoe Arts Federation contains pieces inspired by the found objects of which they're made, and by the artist's desire to bring meaning to those objects. She puts together various elements and portrays a variety of emotions. She recently learned about fractal art, also represented in the exhibit, titled Perceptions of Time and Space, that runs until September 9th (some examples here). She let us in on her process for creation, and we interviewed her while she was in the process of assembling her exhibit.
Anne Parks is a painter, with a background in art and art education. She works from her West Lafayette home, and produces beautiful paintings that reflect her love for nature, and the animals and structures found therein. After leving her job at Purdue, Anne dedicated herself to creating art that makes her happy. It is very artful work, that is also accessible to the consumer. She spoke about the importance of art education, and about her motivaton and inspiration. Find her art at anneparksart.com
