The Story

I am Donald Perry and I live-work in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Born and raised in Zebulon, North Carolina. The son of a Fabric & Interior Designer, I always had a strong interest in art ever since I was a child. I began art classes at the age of seven with instruction including drawing and oil painting, which I attribute to learning the basic skills of a fine artist. I continued to focus on the fundamentals of fine art throughout my formative years. Upon completion of high school, I went on to study graphic design, photography, illustration, fine arts, and creative writing, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications. This is when I went full steam into the digital world of art direction, graphic design, photography, illustration and printing while my art stood behind the scenes. Directed, designed publications and campaigns from conception to print. While my influences are vast, the outer world collides with my inner world to serve as the primary inspiration. I developed my techniques specifically to capture and emphasize the flowing creativity inside a non-traditional approach to composition. The evolution of my work was created by learning more about the positives, negatives and balance. If you would like to discuss original art, creative or art direction, please contact me by email at:, follow me below on Instagram or follow my blog/news at:
