Hi, I’m Phil Perkins, a self-taught graphic artist & photographer living in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.


To develop art and designs, I use the following creative software: Affinity PhotoNik 3 CollectionBryce, Filter Forge and Adobe Photoshop. Subject matter includes nature, space, surreal, abstract and patterns.


For photography, I use a Nikon D7500 with 21 megapixels, focusing on the great outdoors, architecture, industrial structures and macro images. I especially enjoy shooting waterfalls.


Hungry to compete, I took 1st place in a pie eating contest circa 1974. Even today, locals reminiscence about the speed with which I devoured deserts at a young age ~ I’ve never seen anything like it!

The Great Outdoors

A seven-year road bike enthusiast from Michigan, I’m now living in Tennessee, with fewer riding surfaces and much bigger hills! To such ends, I’ve discovered and very much enjoy hiking for exercise.
