Artist Blog

Artist Blog - Studio, doorways, moorland and alleyway roaming of an artist. A creative journey began painting in the remote corners of the world. Painting in Australia, Africa and the Highlands of Scotland.

As his artistic practice developed, Tim’s exotic bird species, game bird paintings have found their way into the galleries and homes of collectors in the UK and the world. Working with a mixture of mediums. Giving a voice to the exotic bird species and game birds of the world. Tim’s art gives voices to the rare and exotic bird species of the world, grouse and partridge.

Deeply connected to the wild places where his studio can be found in the Highlands of Scotland, but firmly connected to the contemporary. Based on North East Scotland and venturing out of the hills for art projects and in all corners of the world. Currently working on art projects featuring a wide range of bird species. Painting parrots of South America - Australia, Grouse and Scottish game bird art subjects.

Paintings can be found on walls and in private client collections around the world.

When not painting time is spent recording images, fashion, art, design and street art found in doorways, alleyways and art galleries of the cities around the world. The blog will share some of the creative passions.
