Timothy Rees

United States

In 2009 Tim Rees picked up his first set of oil paints and never looked back.  He moved to Chicago in September of that year to paint at the historic Palette and Chisel Academy. In 2010 he held his first solo show at the P&C, where he was well-received. Chris Miller stated in a review of the show:  "He pulls these strong compositions together like he's been doing it his entire life." After just a year and a half he joined the staff of instructors and began teaching drawing and painting classes. He soon began teaching figurative and landscape painting workshops locally and abroad.  He has won several awards, including the Palette and Chisel’s People’s Choice award at the annual Gold Medal Exhibition, Southwest Art Magazine's "Artists to Watch", Fine Art Studio Online's Bold Brush Award, and First Prize in Portrait Society of America's Members Only Competition.   He has also been in several publications, including features in American Art Collector Magazine, International Artist, and Southwest Art Magazine.Timothy taught the traditional training program at Scottsdale Artists' School from 2014 to 2017, and the traditional apprentice format and curriculum at Rees Atelier in Mesa, AZ from 2017-2020.  He now lives in Maquoketa, IA.
