Jessica Parker BA (Hons)

After studying art and textiles at the University of Roehampton in the early 1980's, my early career was in fashion and retail. It was only after stepping back to bring up my three children did I find time and inspiration to develop my art, which had always been a passion, again.

I have recently established Kingfisher Studios, alongside the River Windrush at Crawley Mill in West Oxfordshire, and am now focusing a lot more of my time and energy into my art. I paint primarily in mixed media generally composing pieces as I work and often experimenting with new techniques. Landscpapes, buildings, woodland and the coastline are themes I tend to specialise in.  

In addition to my working gallery at Kingfisher Studios, I have exhibited at Art Weeks, Art at Christmas, Church Green Kitchen and the Loft Gallery at Ascott-under-Wychwood on a number of occasions

  • Artwork to Purchase

I always have a range of work available to purchase either direct from the Kingfisher Studios or through other external galleries/venues which exhibit my work from time to time.

  • Commission

I am happy to undertake private commissions - perhaps a favourite holiday destination/view or something completely abstract.

I can work from photographs if necessary and price,size,framing and colour palette can all be pre-agreed.

  • Classes

I run classes/courses and also offer private tuition to keen amateurs as well as GCSE and A level students.

Classes are run at Kingfisher Studios, which apart from having some great internal space is also in an idyllic setting alongside the River Windrush. Group classes are small and generally mixed ability. Complete beginners are welcomed and encouraged
