ABOUT TIM

Born in 1965 in Guam, I wondered the earth at an early age between Germany and Spain. Once back in the States, I started to access my abilities in art.

 

From the time I picked up that crayon and drew those lines on the perfectly white walls
of the family’s house and through my High School and College years, I always was pushing myself to be involved in art. At least 50% of my classes in High School were art related and I hold an Associate Degree in Commercial Art from the Antonelli Institute of Art in Photography in Pennsylvania.

 

Working for over 26+ years in the art community as a Graphic Designer, I always created, whether it be on the computer or by hand. I work professionally through my daytime job as a Graphic Designer but just as professional with all my other art projects.

 

Creating at this time in my career with Acrylic,  focusing on  a cross between a Mexican style of  “Day of the Dead” theme, Horror movie and a tattoo riddled, hard driving rock and roll mentality with just a bit of adolescence sprinkled in, has been the fixation of my themed art.

 

Though I am still a kid at heart and I love to be different when it comes to any art, not wanting to fit into any set genre. As with all my work I produce, I tend to not be so serious and keep it very visually appealing to those viewing and will try to continue this as I expand my style into other arenas.

 

With all of this, basically I am now, after all this time, embarking on a new journey in my life which I hope will feel as good as those first crayon lines on the wall felt.
