Presented by Brandie Perkins
January 18, 2020 to March 29, 2020
“My art captures my passion for the inherent beauty of nature and the skies. I specialize in colour theory, texture, movement and expressing myself emotionally through the pigmentation, luminosity and saturation of the chosen medium. I have years of experience with acrylics being my medium of choice and have more recently fallen prey to the languid lure of alcohol inks."
Brandie Rae Perkins is a local Saskatchewan artist. She is a self-taught, multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on acrylic painting and alcohol inks. Brandie has had an interest in arts since she was young and has focused on creating and adapting her art through a variety of mediums. Colour theory and heavy textures define her work.
