Biography


Roy Perkinson has been a life-long painter. One of his fondest memories is when he was only eight or nine years old, when his dad (also an artist) brought him along to paint watercolors while perched on a levee overlooking Trinity River in Dallas.
 
With his deep fascination for the visible world and how it works, Roy studied physics at MIT, art in a private art school and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and art history at Boston University. Subsequently he trained in paper conservation under F. W. Dolloff at the Museum of Fine Arts, eventually becoming the head of the Museum’s Virginia Herrick Deknatel Paper Conservation Laboratory. Throughout these years he continued to pursue his love of painting, and has been in many group and solo exhibitions. In 2006 he retired and now spends all his time painting, exploring the possibilities of oil, pastel and watercolor.
