Tim Murphy

I'm an oil painter who attempts to record his visual experience using an approach centred on tone, with subtle (hopefully) manipulations of form and colour to direct a viewer's eye. My inspiration for this came, initially, from visiting the Isle of Skye where the majesty of the observed landscape differed notably from the photographs I recorded.

I've been a VAS member since 2013 and received a VAS Signatory Award in 2020. I've held multiple joint and solo shows during this time.

Perhaps my most significant achievement was to paint a picture every day, for a year, during 2013/14. Most of these paintings are securely hidden in my studio, but the hours of learning from my mistakes were invaluable.
