Oil Painter & Pastelist timreilly442@gmail.com

I have been painting since I was 8 years old. After graduating from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY and attending The School of Visual Arts in NYC, I began a career as a Graphic Designer, Art Director and Creative Director for Ad agencies such as J.Walter Thompson, NYC, Corporate Design Departments (Choice Hotels, Silver Spring, MD, AAA, Heathrow, FL), Instructional Television, Broward County, FL and theĀ MiamiĀ ABC television network affiliate.

As a high school senior I received the Scholastic Art Award and as a practicing professional awards from The Society of Illustrators (Dallas and Los Angeles), Pastel Magazine, The Artist Magazine, and International Artist magazine to name a few.

I see myself as an ā€œinterpreterā€ documenting my observations. These recorded observations are completely subjective responses to a variety of subjects primarily seen as light, shadow, color, shape and form. My goals are to infuse the traditional aspect of still life and portraiture with a personal perspective and to grow and evolve as an artist while connecting with the world past, present and future.
