Perry Skaggs is a self-taught artist from Arkansas relocated in Virginia. His current work touches various genres as he tries to find his way in this crazy world of creativity.
"I've painted, drawn, destroyed, carved, and molded materials for as long as I can remember. My work is simply made for the eyes. No current event themes, no radical ideas or statements.
I paint from the heart and it's for that reason that I seldom take on commission work if I do it's because it had a tiny voice, to begin with, that needed help to get out, and I was its amplifier.
I choose mainly landscape themes because nature is such a damn great force to be reckoned with and to be seen. There is nothing so well ordered and yet so beautifully random as a copse of trees or wisps of clouds under a giant thunderstorm. I love all the cracks and crevices, nooks and crannies, sticks and stones, that a fine landscape can throw at me" Perry Skaggs
