Tim Hayward (b.1952) is an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist who has developed a highly individual and imaginative form of wildlife painting. His subtlety in rendering textures in watercolour and gouache, and accuracy of line and form demonstrate a lifetime’s study of and fascination with wildlife.
“Tim’s paintings of birds in flight and at rest combine technical brilliance with the emotional intensity of pure colour. Demonstrating a mastery of his craft and a deep understanding of the birds that he depicts, his work perfectly captures the play of light and shade over feathers, while silhouetting his subject on an abstracted colour background. “ ( Jonathan Cooper ) .
Tim lives and works in Devon, UK. Prior to joining Jonathan Cooper in 2000 he enjoyed a career as a respected wildlife illustrator, working for the Natural History Museum, London; the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds; Readers Digest; Hamlyn Publishers; and Zoo Books, San Diego ; amongst many others. His work is included in the Noorder Dierenpark collection, Netherlands; and in prominent private collections worldwide, including those of the Duke of Bedford, Lady Salisbury, the Duchess of Richmond, and the Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai.
He now exhibits regularly at the Masterpiece Art Fair and at the BADA Art fair, both in London, as well as regular solo exhibitions at Jonathan Cooper, Park Walk, London.
