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 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
The oil painting "The Melton Millennium Meet" is displayed in the Carnegie Museum, Melton Mowbray and is featured with 38,00 paintings of the UK`s national collection on the Art UK website

After over 20 years visiting art groups in the UK, 2022 will see him reduce bookings to concentrate on new painting inspirations and build up a new body of artwork.
