Art & Archetype In an effort to continually grow as an artist and as a person, Tim is pursuing archetypal subjects for his art. Through myths & symbols, Tim hopes to explore human themes & emotions. These works will be set up & painted direct from life - the same method he uses for his still life & portrait art. He has lately been inspired by the works of Waterhouse, Bouguereau, and Gerome - all of whom explored these ideas in their paintings. Tim's paintings are included in many exciting collections including Fred and Sherry Ross, experts and collectors of 19th century art.
