Parker Backdrops is a family run business by Claire and Ryan Parker. All of our backdrops are hand-painted by Claire Parker, a 15+ year professional visual artist. Claire Parker (maiden name Claire Uhlick) studied arts at MacEwan University, before finishing a BFA at the University of Alberta. She has completed two permanent public art commissions and has exhibited her work internationally. Ryan Parker (Claire's Husband) is a professional actor and portrait photographer.
We're proud to say that every single Parker Backdrop is made in the same studio that Claire's father (Sam Uhlick) started his pottery career back in 1975 and the very same studio that Ryan started his photography business. Claire and Ryan have always loved creating together, Parker Backdrops is just one of the many projects they've taken on together. Their proudest creation is their son Jackson.
