Summer 2015 Issue Featuring a Cover Story on:

Edward William Parker, Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists, Andover, Massachussetts

A Statement from J. Russell Jinishian, the internationally recognized authority on marine art, sums up the work of this New England Down East artist who was born in 1946 and went on to an illustrious career: ““Over the past thirty years Parker’s paintings and illustrations have graced books, magazines, private and corporate collections from coast to coast. Working in the great American folk art tradition, he has carved out a name for himself using a sophisticated sense of design, proportion and color to create charming and often humorous vignettes of American life. Ed’s illustrations have a romantic simplicity, a refined naiveté, capturing the best parts of every moment. The paintings borrow from American folklore and history creating inspired moments in time and imagination. They become visual stories that you can interpret and complete, each in their own way. Recently, The Atlanta Journal referred to Ed’s work as ‘Grant Wood with a Yankee sense of humor.’”
