B orn and raised in Wallowa county Oregon, Tim grew up on a farm along the Lostine River where he learned at an early age that he liked to draw, photograph and carve wild life and the natural environment around him. Tim’s first formal training began at Enterprise High School where he explored, drawing, painting, sculpting and the potter’s wheel, knowing after graduating high school he wanted to pursue a career in art or music.
After high school he continued his education by attending Spokane Falls Community College and Eastern Oregon State College, also working misc. jobs from ranch work to construction.
In 1983, Tim was hired at a local foundry where he worked and became intimate in all areas of the bronze casting process including patina. Learning the business from and entry level position to production manager enabled him to become familiar with the business end of bronze casting as well.
In 1996 Tim and Nickie (his wife and business partner) decided to take a leap of faith and began what is now known as Norman Arts, just outside of Enterprise Oregon. This has given them a chance to offer exceptional quality bronze castings and patinas, for their clients as well as allowing Tim to further explore his love of creating his own drawings, paintings and sculpture from concept to completion.
Tim and Nickie have raised two wonderful children Maggie and Brady who have been a big part of the growing of Norman Arts.
They look back with gratitude and respect, for the people and events that have touched their lives, and look forward to what the future might bring.
Tim;s art is currently on display at: Kelly’s Gallery on Main in Joseph Or., Donterra Gallery in Sisters Or., Gallery 1870 in Yountville California
