Because of the common nature of his name he might be difficult to
find. Do you happen to know the titles of any of his works?

Hello kate7-ga! 

I found some information on Ed Parker as well as his representative's
website and contact information.

"There is no mistaking the art of Ed Parker. It’s quaint, charming,
and cracked. That is, Parker developed a technique for his amusing,
colorful views of yesteryear that creates crackles in the finished
surface, lending an even more antique look to his artworks. But even
without the aging, Parker’s work would have a vitality beyond its
years, since his fanciful visions of an unpretentious, unburdened life
combines a sense of community, a sense of humor and a superlative
sense of style."

Greenwich Workshop

This site offers four of Ed Parker's pieces for sale. There is one
that provides a photo representation of the print called "Windjammer

"'This is a print I've wanted to do for a long, long time. It's
inspired by the actual, annual, traditional Windjammer Day in Maine's
Boothbay Harbor. But I've portrayed it in a 19th-century setting
because it is a true piece of our heritage.'"

I found a short biography for Ed Parker on another site, along with a
gallery of some of his works:

"Graduated from Mass. College of Art and worked in advertising and
publishing as an Art Director before moving into illustration. Known
for contemporary interpretations of the "Americana Style", he has
illustrated for a national client base on project ranging from
children's books to annual reports. His work has been shown in Print,
C.A., Graphic Design, awards include those from NY Art Directors,
Hatch Awards, and Society of Illustrators. A series of illustrations
have been published as fine art prints by the Greenwich Workshop and
were recently shown at the Norman Rockwell Museum."

prints. Please letme know if I can be of further assistance, kate7-ga.
