Tim began working on his art more seriously after retiring from a career in paint sales for the Sherwin Williams Company. He is the gallery painter at the Milwaukee Art Museum, responsible for updating the galleries and other spaces whenever there is an exhibit change.
Tim is a self-taught artist working out of a studio in his home. His medium is oil on canvas and gesso board. His themes are landscapes, still life and portraiture, particularly of lesser known historic figures.
He admires the Impressionists of the past, as well as the current work of “Open Impressionists” such as Erin Hanson. Further influences include Ken Kewley, David Hockney, and Dan Graziano.
Tim believes painting is a never-ending exploration of color and form.
Tim grew up in Milwaukee and, with his wife Susan McCarthy, he lives in and is restoring a 1912 Victorian in near Lake Michigan in Kenosha. Susan and Tim have two children, Emily (Gabe) and Tadd (Samantha) and two grandsons, Julian and Aaron.
