His Vision to Become an Artist
A few years ago, Tim was exposed to the world of abstract art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Paintings he saw there reminded him of New Mexico and Colorado where he and his family have camped, and fly fished his whole life. After being exposed to the artwork in Santa Fe, he saw his vision of becoming an artist. Having never painted in his life he returned to Oklahoma and started working with instructor and accomplished artist, Carol Armstrong.
He has been painting ever since.
50 Paintings in 50 States in 50 Days
In May of 2014, Tim embarked on a 50-day tour with a goal of painting 50 Paintings in 50 States in 50 Days. Tim donated 20% of all proceeds from this tour to the Nicole Jarvis Parkinson’s Research Foundation. Of that contribution, 90% was donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and 10% was given to Oklahoma Parkinson’s research.
Ongoing Charitable Activities
Most recently Tim has participated in the Nicole Jarvis Parkinson’s Research Foundation’s annual fund raising benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation as well as fund raising on behalf of the American Heart Association, the Oklahoma Museum of Art, Allied Arts of Oklahoma City and several more local and national organizations.
