Perry is mostly a painter who sometimes can't help but let her creativity spill into other media. Her work is bold, imaginative, alternately haunting and delightful, and frequently features meticulous patterns. She prefers to paint large, and mostly paints with oils for their richness and the freedom they provide.

Perry has been an artist since she first picked up a crayon. She strengthened her desire to be a working artist in a high school Arts magnet program, before getting a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration atRingling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. She then ran a gallery, Studio 1411, in Village of the Arts, Bradenton, Fl. When it was time to go back to get her Master's degree, she chose to go to Savannah College of Art and Design to get an MA in Teaching. She is a professor at State College of Florida, as well as teaching art in a public elementary school, at Tampa Museum of Art, and doing private tutoring. She has a home studio in Historic Kenwood's Artist Enclave. She loves living in Historic Kenwood and is very excited about it's Artist Enclave designation.
