Welcome to the art of Tim O'Brien GAvA.


With over 30 years experience as a freelance artist Tim is able to offer a creative approach to all aspects of hand produced illustration.

Please take a look through Tim's website to see his broad range of work; and below is an example of a dog portrait Tim recently found in his archives that he painted for a client who wanted it as a birthday present gift.

ABOVE: Tim sketching on location: HMS Ocean off Cape Wrath, 14th April 2015 after being invited by the Royal Navy to observe Exercise Joint Warrior as inspiration for some paintings.

ABOVE LEFT: Tim relates the story behind this image: "I recently discovered this artist's impression in my archive that was commissioned a few years ago by a Nottingham garden design firm who needed a watercolour painting creating from their blue-prints. The idea was that it would help them construct a display at the Chelsea Flower Show."
