Fiber art has been Timothy’s artistic expression for most of his life. Color, texture, and the “feel” of fabric has always been important to him. He began his creative exploration using photographic images and repeat pattern to screen print textiles. Feeling the need for more dimensional work led him to feltmaking. Soon this led him to building forms and inhabiting the forms with crocheted webs, and eventually incorporating found objects. Over the last 50 years, he has had an incredible “love affair” with fiber and fabric, and will continue creating new artwork as long as possible.
