Worth considering...

  • Inspiration does exist but it must find you working.

    Pablo Picasso
  • To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.

    Kurt Vonnegut
  • Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.

    Cesar Cruz
  • Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

    Pablo Picasso
  • Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. That time will pass anyway.

  • If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

    Vincent Van Gogh
  • Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Tim Eden's younger years were spent on the family farm - just outside the South Australian Mallee town of Geranium - pouring over colouring books, developing intricate plans for racing cars and underground lairs and losing himself amongst the harsh and wondrous landscape, all the while avoiding rabbit burrows and king brown snakes wherever possible.

Imagination and creativity remained the constant companion throughout life, demanding expression through music, airbrush art, polymer clay sculptures and formally with a Degree in Industrial Design with Honours.

With a young family of his own and the change of perspective this brings, the need for creative expression outside the constraints of his product design career continued to bubble beneath the surface until the seemingly obvious need to take it more seriously finally took hold.

Working mainly in charcoal or acrylics, Tim aspires to produce work that leaves the viewer immersed within the deeper story behind the image, behind the eyes, behind that which makes up their own thoughts and beliefs.
