Biographical history

Painter, printmaker, draughtsman, teacher and handmade paper artist. Born in Wonthaggi, Victoria, Australia. After studying in Melbourne, from 1961 she spent almost a decade teaching and travelling in Australia, Europe and Asia. In 1974 she graduated in printmaking at Glasgow School of Art, completing a postgraduate year in textiles. During this period she was a founder-member of Glasgow Print Studio. Parry worked in Poland in 1975 on a Cargill Scholarship and a glasgow Lady Artists' Club Aware took her to Japan in 1988. Meanwhile, she had become interested in the making of paper, studying the techniques at Barcelona Paper Workshop. So skilled did she become that during the period of 1981-5 she was put in charge of the papermaking department of Glasgow School of Art; she had a show of related works at the Compass Gallery in 1984; and two years later she opened her own papermaking workshop. She was artist-in-residence at several colleges in Australia and in Orkney. Parry showed her work internationally, in 1988 having a big show at Third Eye Centre, Glasgow. In 1966 she was included in the three-man exhibition 'Sculpting at the Fine Art Society' where the worked titled 'Ways of Editing' and the book Visible Traces explored ways that information is created and edited, exposed and concealed. They stemmed from her attempts to make sense of evidence and theories surrounding the disappearance of her brother James of the coast of Northern Australia in 1986.
