Mother of four, Perilla would set her easel up in the playpen while the children roamed outside it. She became a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters but, after moving to a cliffside cottage in Cornwall, painted a wide range of subjects. Perilla also created hangings from materials inherited from her mother based on popular nursery rhymes. She made stage sets for the local pantomime, a hanging for her local church and designed her own linocut Christmas cards. In her later years Perilla turned to writing fiction, and her novel “Tabitha’s House” can be found online.
