Queen Hope Parker

Artist + Queen Hope Parker

I was born and raised in downtown New Orleans into a culture of cooking, music, dance, art, and crafts. My grandfather's hobby was visual art, my dad is a chef, and my grandmother sewed clothing; I freelanced all these talents. As a child, my father registered my siblings and me in dance and music classes. I attended McDonogh 35 Senior High, but due to Hurricane Katrina, I graduated from Westside High in Houston, Texas. After graduating high school, I moved back home and worked full time while attending Delgado, then William Carey for college prerequisites.

I later attended Dillard University School of Nursing in 2012, and I graduated in May 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I am currently a Registered Nurse aspiring to become a Nurse Midwife. I also completed Doula training with Sista Midwife Productions in November 2014 and became a part of Birthmark Doula Collective shortly after.

People often ask, “What’s your focus?” This is an awkward conversation in one sitting. My focus is my belief. My art tells a story in the form of poetry. As an artist, I feel free to express my vision through creations not limited to sewing, painting, drawing, or craft. It all depends on the message I am sending. I dream of a world where we can live holistically in nature, health, and beauty. Originality and authenticity of species and spirit is my highest value. I am now working my way back into the art world to continue sharing this vision with the world.
