Risë Parberry Biography

Risë Parberry graduated from the University of Idaho with a Bachelor of Arts Degree (1971) with a painting emphasis (BFA equivalent) and received an Idaho Secondary Teaching Certificate from Boise State University (1972).  She also received an Occupational Education Certificate from Washington State Community College District 17 in 1975.  Risë’s continuing studies with several nationally known artist and teachers have increased her interpretive and technical vocabulary.  During the twenty-five years that she and her husband, Gary, operated their grain farm in northern Idaho, she taught painting in oil and watercolor through the Washington State Community College Extended Learning program and at the Spokane Parks and Recreation Corbin Art Center (1988-1995) as well as for various watercolor societies and private businesses.  

 Risë enjoys painting in both transparent watercolor and in mixed media applications including acrylics on synthetic papers and various forms of collage.  She holds Juried Signature Member status in the Northwest Watercolor Society and the San Diego Watercolor Society and was awarded Third Place in the 2011 SDWS Annual Juried Exhibition. In 2016, Risë received Watercolor West Juried Membership status after her painting, Liquefaction1, was selected and awarded Second Place for their 48th Annual International Exhibition. Risë’s work has also been included in the American Watercolor Society Annual Exhibition.
