The Conversation: Christina Parrish

I grew up in a home where music, art and literature were a central focus. My mother was a writer, artist and musician who sang and played guitar in clubs in Atlanta when I was small.  My father was a record collector and I have his Dave Brubeck, Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot and Simon and Garfunkel albums in my vinyl collection today. I studied piano, sang in choral groups, performed in community theater, and worked in a variety of visual arts media through high school.

She uses her voice for the greater good. She speaks for people who don’t yet have a platform and she is on a mission to bring the arts to all people.
