Jean Parrish was the daughter of the renowned American painter Maxfield Parrish. She hailed from the village of Cornish, New Hampshire, where she learned the art of painting from her father.
Parrish lived for many years in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As a painter, she established a measure of stylistic independence from her father. She made a career of rendering the sky and terrain of northern New Mexico in a way which captures beautifully the contrast of sun and snow for which the New Mexico terrain is so famous. As have many artists, Parrish worked in portraiture and even sculpture. Time after time, however, she returned to painting the moody light and landscapes of her beloved New Mexico.
