Parrish Monk's Profile

About

Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop.

I am a self-taught artist and a part-time adult educator teaching math, business and entrepreneurship to non-traditional adult learners.

I have been a full-time artist since losing my full-time job in December 2013 as a college professor and Academic Dean when my college employer had to close its campus.

While I was worried, this was a blessing in disguise because I was finally able to pursue my art career full-time and spend more time with my youngest son who is on the Autism Spectrum. While being an artists is certainly challenging, I have been fortunate and blessed to be able to walk this path and explore my creativity after decades of hiding it and suppressing my creative energy. In fact, because of my success and blessings, I opened a not-for-profit arts organization (i.e., INKAA Education Program www.INKAAcollaborative.org) that helps artists and artisans out with the “business side” of the art world for free.

While I live in the Cincinnati Ohio area, I have sold over 394 pieces of original art to collectors and buyers across the globe. This includes pieces sold to HBO for their show Enlightened, Hawaii Five 0, and recently the show Stars with Queen Latifah. However, my biggest pleasure comes from people who purchase my artwork, value my original work, and have my work hanging in their personal spaces. I am deeply humbled and grateful for the continuous support that I have received from people.

I want to thank you in advance for your visit and ask that you visit my websites at www.ParrishMonk.com and www.INKAAcollaborative.org from time to time to check on me. I am also on Facebook where I post most of my artwork and would love to connect with you. https://www.facebook.com/parrishmonk.arts
