Tim Freeman 

Some years ago Tim was looking for a technology free way to relax and escape the stresses of modern life. After attending an introductory watercolour workshop he knew he was onto something. Tim instantly fell in love with the fun, flexible and relaxing medium.

Tim believes enjoying the process of painting is more important than what is produced. By following this philosophy he finds great enjoyment from his art and wishes to share this with others.

Tim was a featured artist in RAW Melbourne "Transcend" November 2017.
