POPULAR TUTOR, REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR TO THE LEISURE PAINTER MAGAZINE AND SEARCH PRESS AUTHOR
Tim Fisher is a leading artist, author and popular art tutor. He became a professional artist in 2000, following a successful career in research for an international US company. Since the launch of his career Tim has won numerous art awards. He was shortlisted from 12,000 entrants for the first Daily Mail Not the Turner Prize competition with his pastel “Pink Hydrangeas”. This was displayed in the Mall Galleries, London and Leicester University.
Approaching his paintings like a researcher, Tim works with the heart of a purist and the mind of a realist. Whenever possible he collects his own reference material by observation, field sketches and photographs. His work is a composite of all these plus a remarkable use of light and colour to produce intriguing and inviting images.
He loves “the language of line” and much of his artwork features ink drawings.
Over a five year period he researched and developed the highly popular Fisher400 art paper after becoming disappointed with what was available in the market place. This unique surface is proving popular amongst both professional and amateur artists worldwide.
The distribution of the paper is now through a US company www.proartpanels.com , who in turn supply Jacksons Art Supplies in the UK.
Tim is a successful author for Search Press with three books , “How to Paint Flowers in Acrylic” “Perspective” and the latest, “A Beginners Guide to Painting with Oil Pastels” which was released in October 2018
He is a regular contributor to the Leisure Painter magazine with articles, reviews and test reports. Tim demonstrates annually at the Patchings Festival for The Artist and Leisure Painter magazine.
Tim will soon feature in some art instruction films on the Painters Online website, details will follow when dates are finalised.
Passing on his knowledge of art is a fundamental part of Tims life, he is more than happy to pass on his experience and is a natural born teacher. Testimonies to his tutoring comment on his patience and empathy with students so they can achieve new techniques with their artwork.
Much of his original work can be found in public, corporate and private collections throughout the world.
