Hi, I’m Haley Parker, and I’m passionate about art and paint! I graduated from Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia with my BFA in 2007 and my teaching license in 2008. I started teaching an after school gifted art program for Roanoke County Public Schools and was then hired by Franklin County Public Schools where I taught elementary art for seven years.
While teaching, I couldn’t stop thinking about my own passion for painting. I began studying at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2011 and graduated with my MFA in 2015. I specifically studied Drawing and Painting working in an Abstract Expressionist style on large-scale canvasses. Sharing this passion through teaching art is the best gift I can give! I love teaching something that is such a big part of my life, and AOE is one more way to do that. I love being a part of this amazing Art of Education team!
