Dennis Parker

Dennis Parker studied three years as an apprentice to artist Richard Goetz. Later, while attending the New York Art Student's League and the New York Academy of Art, Dennis' instructors included such notable artists as Daniel Green, David Laffel and Ted Jacobs. He has also studied individually with Joe Beeler and Albert Handell.

Working out of doors from life or in front of a model is where Dennis feels his best work is done. "Painting on the spot, I feel I get more of a sense of light and color, and the interaction with live impressions gives the painting a freshness that is hard to capture any other way."

Dennis has participated in national shows winning honors for both pastels and oils. He also teaches and demonstrates throughout the state.
