Kelly Parker is a designer and maker of contem­po­rary studio furni­ture and sculp­ture. After grad­u­at­ing with a degree in Biochem­istry she worked in the corpo­rate world for 18 years before taking a rather circuitous route into art. In 2009 she took the plunge, shucked the safety of the corpo­rate world and decided to make her living as a wood­worker. She has taken numer­ous design and tech­nique classes at Ander­son Ranch Arts Center and the Marc Adams School of Woodworking. 

She has a deep appre­ci­a­tion and rever­ence for wood and espe­cially likes using reclaimed, gifted or site-harvested lumber. She designs and creates one-of-a-kind and limited produc­tion pieces in her studio in Parkville, Missouri, often incor­po­rat­ing other mate­ri­als such as metal and glass. She also writes and teaches internationally.
