Erin Perkins

Erin Perkins’s favorite activity as a child was writing, illustrating, and binding books (and her parents wondered why no one wanted to come play).  While she can no longer execute a perfect French fold, she took on other aspects of her hobbies as an adult.  Perkins is currently an Art Director at the College of Charleston in the Division of Marketing and Communication. In the evenings, she can be found covering events for Charleston City Paper.  And in between, she’s probably tweeting from @erperkin or posting on her blog, highheelsandtwowheels.com. Perkins came to Charleston after finishing an undergraduate degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  On her third day in town, she walked into the City Gallery at Waterfront Park and asked if they needed an extra intern. After the first installation at the Gallery, she’s been in love with Charleston and its creatives ever since."
