“Tim Tyler is a contemporary artist who works in a representational manner. Inspired by the Old Master's Tyler's skills and technical ability to achieve high levels of realism are impressive, yet it is his visual wit, use of satire and clever method of social commentaries that he weaves into his compositions that elevate his works above practicing realist artists. A respected professional artist, Tyler has a distinctive career and received honorable recognition for his work from notable authorities and leaders in the arts such as the late Charles Banks Wilson.” —- Aaron Jones, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
Tim Tyler grew up in the West: Arizona, California and Oklahoma, and was influenced by the natural beauty of these places, cowboy and western lore, and many art museums.
He completed his first commission at 14, and Scottsdale Galleries were exhibiting his work before he was 20. For many years, Tim worked in the aviation, construction and petroleum industries, painting nights and weekends until his work began to sell and he could transition to becoming a full-time artist.

Tim’s earliest works consisted of still life and landscape paintings, inspired by artists such as Remington and Bierstadt, followed by masters such as John Singer Sargent and Joaquin Sorolla. From Scottsdale to Connecticut, his work was eventually displayed in over one hundred galleries, via consignments or in special exhibitions. His work began getting awards and art magazines began noticing his work. Museum exhibitions then began and he opened an art gallery of his own.
During the decade of his forties, Tim began teaching workshops around the nation with a few summer workshops in Europe, especially Italy, accompanied by his family. His native state of Oklahoma commissioned seven historic paintings; six currently hang in the state capitol.
