Artist Statement

Using an abnormally bright colour pallet to deliver my New School Pop Art Style, my work is both bold and versatile, often filled with humor and fun loving characters of the Southwest, commonly laced with hidden messages that speak to the idea of unity and community.  Constantly seeking my next challenge, I am well known for working in any style, any size and with any medium.  One this is for certain, when you see a Jesse Perry piece, you know it.
