This Friday, Frank James is pleased to announce that, Washington born and raised artist, Katy Parish will be display her art for the month of February. Katy graduated from University of Puget Sound in 1984 with a BA in Arts and has been drawing and painting for more than thirty years. Katy describes her way of creating art as “drawing from my imagination based on perception of things seen around me as I go from day to day”. When creating most of the pieces that will be shown, Katy was living in the Nile Valley of the Naches River, in Washington State. Her pieces are created using pastels and motivated by “color, composition, and imagination”. A personal favorite that will be shown at the show is “Fall in the Nile”. When asked why she is excited to be showing in Portland Katy responded with “I love this city and I’ll get to go to Powell’s”. Katy currently resides in Yakima, WA where she continues to create beautiful pieces.
