Timothy Rees began his pursuit of art by moving to Chicago in 2009 to paint in the open studios of the Palette and Chisel Academy. After one year he joined the staff of instructors, and soon began teaching workshops locally and abroad. In 2012 he moved to Scottsdale, where he later created and taught a classical art program for the Scottsdale Artist School. In 2017 he opened an atelier, where between 10 and 15 apprentices studied under him at any given time. In 2020 he moved to Iowa, where he paints in his downtown studio. Throughout his decade of painting he has appeared in numerous publications such as Fine Art Connoisseur, International Artist, Southwest Art, and American Art Collector. He has won various awards, including first place in Portrait Society of America’s Members only Competition, Art Renewal Center’s Gallery Award, FASO’s Bold Brush award, and People’s Choice Award in the SAS Beaux Arts Show and P&C Gold medal show. He has filmed two instructional videos with Streamline Publishing, and has created a comprehensive remote atelier training program with textbooks and 200 hours of instructional video, for those unable to attend a traditional atelier.
Timothy paints a range of subjects and in various techniques, but is best known for his loose all prima portraits, striking life-size figure paintings, and naturalistic outdoor figure paintings of women and children. While some of his work has a narrative or a message, he says the most important thing with his paintings is to add to the inherent beauty of the world.
