About


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

I operate several different shops through various print on demand outlets, where my pictures are applied to a line of unique products. Visit these shops to see more:

Society 6, Redbubble, Pixels, Zazzle, Cafepress, Fine Art America, ArtPal, ArtFlakes

To develop art and designs, I use the following creative software: Affinity Photo, BryceFilter Forge and sometimes Adobe Photoshop.

For photography, I use a Nikon D7500 with 21 megapixels, focusing primarily on the great outdoors – especially waterfalls. I also use the Nik 3 Collection plugins.

As header images for music posts, I often use free photographs from unsplash.com. It’s an excellent resource. You can read about their license here.

My web site is hosted through wordpress.com and uses the default WordPress theme called Twenty Twenty-One, a modern theme supporting the Gutenberg editor which incorporates block patterns.

Have you purchased something recently with one of my designs? If so, I may post a photo of the item on my web site. Please send to – hello@perkinsdesigns.com. Thanks!

Awards. Hungry to compete, I took First 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!

Having moved from Michigan to Tennessee, there are fewer road-bicycle surfaces and much bigger hills. As such, I’ve discovered and very much enjoy hiking for exercise.

If you enjoy the sport of disc golf, then you may like to read some of my disc golf stories.

You may also enjoy reading about my close encounter with bears, an Irish riddle, an adventure at Paine Creek and a mind reading trick.

And, here are some of my favorite photographs from various hiking adventures.

You can see me in videos here:
