Tim undertook a fine art degree course at the prestigious Glasgow School of Art. He transferred his degree to London and embarked on his second year at The Byam Shaw School of Art. After gaining his fine art honours, Tim's potential was immediately spotted by a leading London gallery who offered to exhibit his work. From there he did not look back and has subsequently shown with some of London's finest galleries.
Tim has since received recognition with his election as President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters @royalinstituteofoilpainters in 2018.
As a practised figurative artist Tim not only creates a distinguishable likeness of a subject but moreover evokes the sitter’s character and mood. He is never satisfied with simple representation, rather concentrating on bringing to his work an emotive and often visceral quality.
Tim is committed to working with charities and NGOs to tell the stories of people throughout the world who don’t have a voice.
