Perrin D. is a talented and prolific abstract painter.

She’s traveled and lived abroad, has a number of degrees (including a Master’s of Fine Art), and is an avid runner, biker, and hiker.

“I am a life-long learner who appreciates a variety of subjects and topics … I am a believer in the Chris McCandless quote: ‘Happiness is only real when shared.’ [And] painting is the only solo activity that I truly enjoy being alone for hours doing.”

Before moving back to the U.S., Perrin was led Marketing and Communications for a foundation in Bangkok, Thailand after receiving her M.F.A. in Ireland. When she got back to the States, she found dashing made a great complement to her new full time role at the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce.

“I started dashing because I thought it would be a quick and easy way to make extra cash. My cousins told me about it and I had to try it for myself!”

Perrin stays focusing on her art, friends, and personal life, but she finds time to dash, even between errands.

“When I am already out, it feels silly not to dash, and I enjoy it! I used to be a waitress and it reminds me a bit of my experience serving customers. Bringing people things that make them happy, makes me happy!”

With Perrin’s positivity and flair for life, it’s no wonder she finds enjoyment in dashing, too. She says it’s even helped her grow a little:

“Dashing has helped give me confidence that even when the job market seems tough, there is a way to make cash. It's been wonderful being able to dash and make money based on my schedule.”
