Born in South Africa, Tim began modeling with clay there at the age of six. He was impressed at that early age by the ceramic sculptures of Bantu cattle and horses by local indigenous artists. Throughout his childhood and adolescence, he continued modeling with wax and clay as a favourite pastime. After graduating with a degree in Anthropology from Trent University, he travelled to Switzerland where he met the painter and sculptor, Jacques Walther. After honing his sculpting skills under the guidance of Jacques, Tim was urged to continue with his art and to take his ability as a sculptor seriously. Before departing Switzerland, Tim had a successful solo exhibition at the Atelier Jacques Walther. Having worked with Clay from an early age, ceramic sculpture has become his preferred medium. Taking inspiration from Henry Moore, he has also created pieces with plaster. Sometimes a mold is made of the plaster sculpture and then a cast is done in hydrostone, as the final material. After working on several private commissions out of a studio in Toronto, Tim has relocated to the South Georgian Bay area where he spends a good deal of time in the great outdoors and is inspired by nature and animals in the wild.
