Tim is a leading artist, author and popular art tutor. Born in Leicestershire, England he became a professional in 2000, following a successful career in research for an international US company.

He was a finalist in the Daily Mail "Not the Turner Prize" award, short listed from 12,000 entrants and had his pastel painting "Pink Hydrangeas" displayed in the Mall Gallery, London
Approaching his paintings like a researcher, Tim works with the heart of a purist and the mind of a realist. Whenever possible he collects his own reference material by observation, field sketches and photography
He loves the "language of line" and the ability to very rapidly sketch the scene en Plein air. This proves very useful when sketching outdoors when the weather proves inclement. He has been known to capture a rapid sketch in the Lake District in the pouring rain from a telephone box and then retire to a local pub to add tone to the sketch
His work is displayed in public, private and corporate situations throughout the world
His ability to have empathy with his students has left him in popular demand with art societies for regular demonstrations and workshops where he is repeatedly asked back.
