The Story of Tim Matthews
I was born and raised in Rock Hill, South. I have had an interest in art for as long as I can remember. I first started doodling as a little boy, often getting in trouble for doing this on the walls at home. As I got older, I discovered the classic Walt Disney animated features and started learning to draw by sketching my favorite characters. At the age of 12, I started taking formal art lessons from a successful artist in my hometown, learning to work with a variety of drawing and painting mediums. I continued to study art throughout my teen years.
For me, a painting is not just something you see, but something you experience. There is so much beauty in the world around us that is often missed as we hustle and bustle through life. I try to showcase that beauty in my work.
I have been painting in oil for several years now and it is my predominate medium. I find the richness of oil perfect for rendering my interpretations of the world around me.
About the Business
I have been selling my art for the last six years. I started showing not long after I graduated high school. I consider my art to be my life’s work. I want to share the beauty I find in the world around me with everyone I can. I take satisfaction from seeing a client overjoyed when they first see a commissioned painting, or when someone finds deep meaning and a personal connection to one of my prints.
I sell reproductions of my art on my website, www.artoftimmatthews.com
Original paintings are also available and I take commissions for custom work. You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram.
