Polly Perkins' Profile

About

I've painted and drawn for as long as I can remember. I like to draw 'from life'...looking carefully. Drawing is all about looking. My subjects include human figures, shells, landscapes, plants, gardens and other things that delight the eye and mind.

Recently retired from a day job as a museum designer, I have shown frequently in Florida west coast art festivals, including Gasparilla and Gainesville. My work has been purchased by Tampa’s “Art In Public Places,” is included in private and corporate collections, and has traveled nationally as part of a 2-year exhibition from the Everson Museum, Syracuse.
