Art and Music, A Natural Pair


Art and music, a natural pair. Both are interpretive and expressive so it is natural for the two to come together in our package designs. Album art is an important part of any release as it is often the first contact the listener will have with the album. Much like increased curb appeal draws people into your home, the cover art must both compel the viewer to engage it, as well as accurately depict the music inside.

PARMA has recently made connections with some really talented fine artists. This effort has a dual purpose: unique artwork will create a strong, iconic visual impact for the album, and it also helps to bring these artists' work to a new audiences. Support of artists of any type is central to our core philosophy at PARMA.

One such artist we have partnered with is painter Lena Karpinsky. The daughter of a Russian concert master, Lena's work is very expressive and has a strong musical quality to it. Her love for music comes through in every piece. We are really pleased to be working with her.

Karpinsky's work is soon to be featured on two of Navona Records' upcoming releases.
