This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Margaret Parish was born Margaret Blumel in Kansas City, Missouri in 1912. She had an affinity for art from an early age. She was a member of the 1930 senior class art club at Kansas City's Central High. Parish studied art during the ensuing years, influenced by artists such as Thomas Hart Benton and James Young-Hunter.

Parish's knack for painting the rural country scenes and landscape was inspired by the beautiful Kansas countryside which still has that flavor of the old pioneer era today. Her works were quickly recognized by Greater Kansas City Art Association and the [Kansas City] Tri-County Art Association with a running series of awards from the mid-1980s onward. These are highlighted by the 1992 and 1995 Kansas City artist-of-the-year awards. Parish was multi-talented, winning awards for portrait, watercolor, stone lithography, and oil paintings.

Interestingly, Parish also collected art over the years and compiled a modest collection of well known Kansas and Missouri artists. Parish died unexpectedly at her home and studio in Prairie Village, Kansas in 1997 at the height of her personal successes and popularity.
