Perdita has a BA in Fine Art Painting from the University of Wales, Cardiff. Her work coats endemic issues, such as climate change, mental health and contemporary politics, with bright city lights, pastel ice-cream colours, and symbols of the loveable. Dismembering and reconstructing sources of inspiration, Perdita nurtures her work into its own ecosystem. In this way, she uncovers diverse experiences to understand the impact of societal events on nature and individual human existence.
Perdita has received four awards from Arts Council England. The artist has exhibited widely in the UK, including at the National Portrait Gallery, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Academy of Art, the Laing Gallery and The Koppel Project, and throughout China, Germany, the USA, Greece and France. Alongside her practice as an artist, she has also curated various exhibitions, including at the Window Gallery, Brighton, and The Koppel Project.
