Born into a large and non arty family in Colkirk, Norfolk, Tim was unable to pursue any art education or professional practice until his late maturity (although he says he never really did grow up!).  He moved away from East Anglia early in life and settled in Cornwall in 1979.

After careers in Health and Social Care, Tim studied art history at Falmouth College of Art graduating with a Masters in Art & Design: Histories and Theories in 2005. At the same time, he was studying Fine Art at Cornwall College before moving back to University College Falmouth and gaining a BA (Hons) Fine Art in 2007. With his wife, the artist Diana WAYNE, he took on the management of Morvah Schoolhouse, a community art space before spending a year running the Over the Moon gallery in St Agnes. They then moved to Penzance in 2009 and opened The Alverton Gallery, their own enterprise, where they currently have their studio space.

Tim is well known for his stark woodcut bird prints and ceramic figurative pieces but also produces fine expressionist paintings.
