ABOUT Tim - the heArt of an Artist



Painting is my chosen form of storytelling. Each of my paintings is an attempt to capture the essence of a particular moment and tell its story for the viewer’s enjoyment. I have found watercolor to be the perfect tool to interpret and portray the sights and mood that make the story of a particular scene so compelling. Recently, I rediscovered both my early love of nature, and my passion for capturing its warmth, complexity, and abstractions through my watercolors.             

My goal throughout my art career has been to create extraordinary visual statements that engage the viewer and compel them to step inside my art and become part of the story. I am proud and humbled to have been recognized for my employment of techniques in transparent watercolor and dry-brush, and have won a number of awards in national and international  competitions.

After graduating with a Bachelor of  Fine Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Art, I pursued a corporate career as a creative director for over 20 years, while continuing to paint and show my work. In addition to my own work, I have for a number of years, taught art at the college level. I recognize in many of my students the aspiring young artist I once was. I feel very fortunate to be able to support these future artists and designers to build their skills and confidence.

"Artist Timothy Myrick has painted this stunning watercolor with muted colors and wide ranging values but my attention is most focused on the complex, excellent perspective drawing underlying all, the engine that drives a fascinating, compelling composition. Throughout, the artist has maintained a feeling of atmosphere and intrigue, with the excitement of visiting an exotic place."    -Judge, Sedona Art Prize
