Tim studied Illustration at the University of Kingston and received a BA(Hons). After travelling in India and the US he returned to his childhood home of Wensleydale to apprentice with the Master etcher and painter Piers Browne for three years, then joined the Prince’s Trust and went into business.
Tim is principally an etcher, line etching and pattern aquatinting into steel and zinc plates. He then inks these plates up with heavy oil-based printing inks and prints onto acid free paper on either a rollaco, or gunning press. His interest is in the landscapes and cityscapes he travels in, and his style has frequently been compared to that of the Victorian illustrator Arthur Rackham, but with a Japanese style.
Tim has exhibited at over 300 shows, galleries and fairs nationally, and has won best artist: Great Northern show 2002, best artist: Brighton Open house 2008, and appeared on Dales Diary on ITV. He has 16 etchings in the permanent collection at the Palace of Westminster.
