Perkins uses the language of painting to express her frustration at the difficulties women still experience in the art world. She uses the framework of myths and fairy tales to explore her anger and expose the forgotten role of the feminine in the tales that peppered her childhood. and her motherhood. She has invented her own mythology using humanimals to express the spirit of the tale. She is interested in the way myths and tales have changed through time to reflect societal values part of that is examining the changing values of women within those tales.
