"Perry's work is a brilliantly realized comment on the inseparableness of art and life, and the sense of ambiguity makes it all the more effective." - Byron Coleman, Gallery&Studio Magazine, 2009

Working in the mediums of painting, drawing, and printmaking, I make images about the experiences of life. Sights, sounds, smells, moods, and emotions, take on a visual experience. Using the formal languages of art I transpose these senses and feelings into visual expression. Image making allows me to mellow out; to take in the moment; to give it breath and expand it. To experience art and life.

As a teacher, and collaborative printmaker, I work with students and artists of all levels to develop their creative ideas and produce original works of contemporary art. I have an MFA in painting and am currently finishing my Master Printer apprenticeship in collaborative printmaking at Tamarind Institute. I specialize in teaching all forms of 2D media including painting, printmaking, drawing, and design, as well as foundation courses and art history seminars. I also collaborate with professional artists to produce new works of original hand-printed fine art lithographs.

Please contact me for more information regarding artwork sales, upcoming exhibitions, or professional printmaking services.
