Tim Fisher is a leading artist, author and popular art tutor. Born in Leicestershire, England, Tim became a professional artist in 2000, following a successful career in research for an international US company. The industry regarded Tim as a highly creative person. He currently holds two worldwide patents.
Since the launch of his career, Tim has won numerous art awards. He was short listed from 12,000 entrants for the first Daily Mail Not the Turner Prize competition. His pastel entitled “Pink Hydrangeas” has subsequently been displayed at the Mall Galleries, London.
Approaching his paintings like a researcher, Tim works with the heart of a purist and the mind of a realist. Whenever possible he collects his own reference material by observation, field sketches and taking photographs.
His work is displayed in public, private and corporate institutions throughout the world. The book “How to Paint Flowers in Acrylic” by Search Press is now on general release and he has completed working on his second book about “Perspective” which is now available.
Tim has also had great success following his decision to develop a surface for soft pastel artists. After years of development Fisher400 is now seen as one of the quality surfaces for soft pastel artists. It is also suitable for oil pastel, mixed media and coloured pencil. It is shipped worldwide and is now the paper of preference for many professional artists.
Tim has also developed a Soft Pastel Liquefier with Sennelier; a unique medium that can be applied directly to soft pastels to temporarily liquefy colours. This allows pastel colours to be mixed and blended giving effects not usually associated with traditional pastel techniques.

– Tim is also bringing out a new book this October called Beginner’s Guide to Painting with Oil Pastels.
