Kadri Pärnamets

Kadri Pärnamets (b. 1968 Rakvere, Estonia, lives and works in Cummington, MA) graduated from the Art Institute of Tallinn, Estonia in 1990 with a BA/MFA in Ceramics. In 2009, she immigrated to the United States. Pärnamets has a long international resume, working as both an educator and independent artist.

Focusing on gesture and expression, she selects known classics of female beauty by painters from the European Renaissance and Impressionist eras, like Lucas Cranach the Elder and Edouard Manet.

Kadri has taught in the Estonian Art Academy and is a member of the Asuurkeraamika Studio, Estonian Artists Association, and Estonian Ceramist Association. Since 1996, she has participated in symposiums in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Switzerland, USA, Norway, and Hungary.
