to a talent he did not know he

He found he could draw. Not just
draw, but draw good and he learned
to paint.

He could reproduce people’s images,
things he saw, and most amazingly

When he picked up the brush and
applied paint to the canvas he

of LaCygne, Kansas with his wife of
twenty-one years and his two cats,

Tim continues to market his art
through original paintings, prints,
and giclee’ prints.
