Local Artist Spotlight: Perry deVick

Perry deVick: Rough Around The Edges, Oil on Canvas 30”x24”

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 at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota. She then ran a gallery, Studio 1411, in Village of the Arts, Bradenton.

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 teaches in a public elementary school, Tampa Museum of Art, and does private tutoring. She has a home studio in Historic Kenwood’s Artist Enclave, which she shares with her husband (a fellow artist), three sassy cats, and a doofy dog. She loves living in Historic Kenwood and is very excited about it’s new Artist Enclave designation. She is an active member, frequently participating in studio tours and AEHK exhibitions.
