Paris WoodhullKnoxville, TN, US
My name is Paris Woodhull and I create apparel with a purpose, quirky paper goods, and city maps. All of my product is hand drawn and then created into printed goods. Why waste time and hand draw? Because I'm a strong believer in the power of something that is handmade with love and care!
I am a Knoxville native and recent graduate of the University of Tennessee with a BFA in 2D art. I love bold color, pattern, pop culture, portraiture, fashion, and most importantly the wonderful city I live in!
Maps By Paris Woodhull
I grew up around artists, politicians, messy kids, ex-cons, cranky neighbors, activists and community busy-bodies. I was 4 months old when my parents moved our family from the suburbs to a house just two blocks shy of the projects in Knoxville, TN. Growing up, I never felt like my normal wasn’t “normal.” We were people learning and growing with the community around us. And Knoxville? It was changing. A slow, steady, thoughtful change. Over the years Knoxville has flourished in so many different ways while continuing to push for even more change. There were definitely moments when I thought for sure I would move. What can a small town like Knoxville offer me as an artist?! It turns out...a lot...even a living making art. I’m grateful for Knoxville and all of the ways it has taught me to love, learn, listen and grow. I was born/raised here, I've learned difficult lessons here, I've celebrated wins here, and I've felt the love of a honest/supportive community. Knoxville is home.
