Kaela Parkhouse currently lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. She received a B.A. from Penn State University in State College, PA. She also attended classes at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, University of the Arts and Corcoran College of Art and Design. She finds immense guidance from studying works by Charles Burchfield and John Singer Sargent.

Ms. Parkhouse looks for a direct experience with the subject at hand. The resulting artwork is an attempt to reveal that experience. Even the larger studio pieces which takes weeks to complete have the goal of revealing a momentary feeling.
