Kristin Parrott

Inks, Mixed Media & Stone Carvings

I am an artist and an author wannabe. I have lived in Iran, Liberia, and five U.S. states. I have degrees in Anthropology and Latin American Studies, as well as many graduate hours in jewelry design. I studied art at the University of Colorado and UNM, and was one of the first artists-in-the-schools, back in the 1970s. From 1975 to 1980, my family and I owned an art gallery in Albuquerque’s Old Town, The Painted Parrott. From oil paintings I moved to pen and ink drawings, which feature brilliant color, strong line and a slightly cockeyed slant on the world. I studied with Lakota fetish carver Delbert Charging Crow, and I bring a Celtic sensibility to my stone carvings, specializing in hands made of soapstone and alabaster, as well as little animals, including bears, birds and frogs. I have been busting loose with my assemblages, in which I combine everything but the kitchen sink to create landscapes, angels and abstracts. My watercolor/mixed media pieces focus on trees, yet another obsession of mine.

Just looking to see if this is the Kris Parrott who blessed my life many decades ago with Mountain Lightscape, which still hangs, many moves later, over my bed.
