Nancy Parker is a retired Elementary School Music Teacher who loves the process of
putting Color, Rhythm, Harmony, Balance and Mood on paper as well as in song. All my
life I have had a special love for music and art. As a child my best friend and I
spent many hours drawing and coloring together. All through every grade in Tulsa
Public Schools I had music and art classes. Even in collage where I was a music
major, I took art classes. I minored in Art.
"After college, I married and had three boys. I put my art on hold while I taught
music in elementary school for 23 years. Bulletin Boards were my only painting
outlet. Once I retired, my first thought was to go back to college and brush up on
my painting skills. I took classes at T.C.C.(Tulsa Community College) in Drawing,
Color and Design and Watercolor. I then joined O.A.W. (Okla. Art Workshops) where
I took workshops of 3 to 5 days from the following artists.

I am a charter member of the Focal Point Artists and have exhibited with them
at every show and open house that we have had. My paintings have hung at various
places in Tulsa and surrounding communities. Painting Still Life set ups and
Landscapes in both watercolor and oils are my favorite things to do but I also like
to experiment with abstract designs. It is also fun to see how many of the musical
elements of Color, Rhythm, Harmony, Balance and Mood I can work into my paintings."
