Parish studied at Académie Julian in Paris and also claimed training from William Merritt Chase and Benjamin Constant. He advertised as a portraitist and landscape artist in Birmingham in the 1890s, keeping a studio on the 3rd floor, above Colby & Roll, at 2023 1st Avenue North.

Parish later moved to Cape Cod, Massachusetts where he kept a home studio during the 1920s and 30s. In 1937 he relocated to San Diego where he remained until his death.
