As a long time framer (and fellow artist) it’s always such a pleasure to meet and discover amazing new artists. I enjoy building relationships with these beautiful creatives, who often are immensely insightful and empathic creatures, and whose visions add so much color and beauty to our lives. Becky Parrish, also a new-ish Gordonsville resident, has become one of these amazing new friends. Becky moved to GVL in the Winter of 2015 when she fell in love with an adorable little cottage that she has lovingly restored and made into a gorgeous little artisan home with an adjacent light filled studio space and lovely colorful garden. What drew Becky to Gordonsville? She loves the quaintness, the friendly faces, the fact that she can walk everywhere, and she says she has met an amazing amount of supportive, creative & progressive like-minded thinkers that she has become great friends with.
Like I, Becky received her undergraduate degree from the Corcoran Gallery School of Art in Washington D.C. She then went on to get her masters in painting at GW. Over the years, she spent many summers in Bretagne, France, where she used her time painting French market-inspired still lives while her artist husband at the time spent the days painting landscapes in the French countryside.
Becky works in oils exclusively with an emphasis on still lives and portraits.
She teaches classes and workshops at her studio to local patrons and students on Tuesdays, and teaches classes in Warrenton on Thursdays.
