July Artist - Tim Timken
I attended Nebraska Wesleyan University where I graduated with a bachelor of fine arts degree and a minor in biology. I worked for 30 years at Nebraska Public Television Network as a designer and illustrator. I was the art director there until 2001, when I left the commercial art field and returned to fine art full-time. This was a breath of fresh air — moving from clients and deadlines — to doing work I wanted to do in my own time.
I applied at and was accepted to various shows throughout the continental U.S. and received recognitions and awards along the way. At this time, I was primarily a pastel artist and pursued the designation as Master Pastelist. I received this designation in 2011. Shortly after, I wanted to explore a new visual style, changing medium and format. For the past several years, I’ve worked mostly in oils. I continue to paint and show at a variety of venues within the Lincoln area where I live with my wife and our dog Griffin.
I’m always on the lookout for images that excite my visual senses. While my subject matter may be well known to you, I try to present it in a unique way. I choose to paint images from a wide range of subject matter — from landscapes and architectural details — to mechanical and still life. Because I favor the use of common, often discarded objects and materials to achieve a unique perspective — and therefore memorable painting — you might often find me in junk yards. I find these to be a good source of mechanical images that I can easily move ‘visually’ into the abstract.
