Timothy Brewer was born in Toledo, Ohio in 1963. He currently resides in Manhattan.
Timothy studied painting at the venerable Art Students League of New York, where he apprenticed under the master painter Frank Mason, the foremost authority on the techniques of the old masters. Under Mason, Timothy learned the traditional principles of oil painting--from sizing his own canvas to grinding pigments and making his own mediums from baroque recipes. In addition to having studied painting, Timothy holds degrees in both philosophy and theology.
"Light and atmosphere, color and mood dominate my work. I am deeply interested in the pathos and vibrancy of the human figure, through which I hope to convey the beauty, subtlety and harmony of our lived-experience."
