Bird Artist Blog

Pondering's of a bird artist and fellow creatives. Wild moorland and street art roaming's, studio days and remote corners. 

Working in a wide range of media from spray paint to traditional oils Tim’s art gives voices to game birds in the landscape, the rare and exotic bird species of the world. Each year work revolves around work in the studio in the UK mixed with art projects in other corners of the world.

Roaming doorways and alleyways in search of art spaces. Maybe Melbourne, Australia - Highlands of Scotland - London - Perth, Australia - Berlin, Germany, or Dublin. All amazing urban environments with street art scenes, that in their own way mirror many of the habitats and the pressures on the inhabitants where the avian subjects of the paintings live in the wild.

Currently working on species including parrots and macaws of South America, Hornbills of Africa and Asia and grouse species of upland Britain.
