Artist Profiles » Timon Maxey

Timon MaxeyTimon has always been very interested and involved in art. His parents are both artistic and musical, and this inspired Timon to paint and draw from a very early age. Even while at university studying geography, he spent much of his spare time drawing, and deriving supplementary income from artistic endeavours. Since university Timon’s desire has been to pursue an artistic career. Until recently, this has been predominantly a career as a commercial artist. However, inspired by the successes of other artists and by the enjoyment he gets from painting, Timon now dedicates almost all his time to a career in fine art. “I have a very wide range of experiences and knowledge to draw from, and want to incorporate these into my art to produce work that interests and excites both the audience and myself.”

The images in Timon’s limited edition prints are composed on computer using hand rendered components. He begins by scanning an ink drawing, and then pasting in painted textures, using Photoshop. The images are then printed onto 300gsm German Etching paper using a high quality inkjet printer with inks that are 108 years light-fast.
