Tim Paul was born in 1950 in Esperanza Inlet, an isolated village on the rugged West coast of Vancouver Island. Tim is an internationally renowned painter and carver with many of his works being featured in collections worldwide.
Tim’s carving career began in the mid 70’s in Victoria, BC., working under Ben Andrews, and eventually John Livingston. In 1977 he began assisting Richard Hunt, taking part in the carving program at Thunderbird Park (Royal BC Museum) in Victoria.
Tim’s carving talents aside, he is also known as a gifted graphic artist, painting originals and releasing limited edition serigraphs. In 2018, Tim released his first serigraph in over 10 years, entitled “Ticc-Yupii (Your Balance)”. In typical Tim Paul fashion, Ticc-Yupii shows the artist’s tremendous understanding and knowledge of history and tradition, as well as his concern for the environment.
