Thoughts from the artist:

"My work is figurative and generallly uses a narrative framework to explore themes of our shared history, often with strong character and emotional resonance. I enjoy playing with metaphor, scale and perspective and creating images that, at first, seem intrinsically simple but, on closer inspection, are complex.


"My creative process reflects everyday life experiences which are often re-interpreted in an otherworldly context. I am a sponge that soaks up the nuances of character and behaviour that I see in others and also within myself. I often reach back into my childhood experiences to reference a distant me, in a quest to find meaning in what I see here today. From these experiences a spark of an idea moves from my mind into notes and jottings, which gradually come together to form compositions."

    Tim was born in Staffordshire and grew up on the edge of the heavy industrial heartlands of the Black Country. He studied Fine Art at Northumbria University and then printmaking at the Royal College of Art and L’école des Beaux Art, Paris.


    Based in London for 20 years, he taught at University level while maintaining a career as a professional artist, before leaving the teaching profession and concentrating solely on making art.


    For the last 20 years he has been based in Cadiz Province in southern Spain, where he makes most of his work. Much of his work is made in etching as he has an etching press in his Spanish studio. He also creates silkscreen prints at the Birmingham Printmakers print studio in the UK and monotypes inspired by the beauty and colour of his local landscape on the Costa de la Luz.


    "I continue to be intrigued and inspired into further experimentation in technique and process. I take great joy in setting myself harder goals, creating paths of greater difficulty, and triumphing over my inevitable failures. However, in the end, all that really matters to me is that the viewer has the opportunity to find their own meaning and value in the art that I make."


    Tim is an elected member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.
