I have liked to paint and draw for as long as I can remember but don’t have any formal qualifications or
training. I took Art as a minor subject when I did my degree and I’ve done a number of leisure....

As a practitioner I have always enjoyed moving away from the expected and rising to the unknown.  My early work was predominantly 2-D and graphic in expression but I have lately been attracted to developing a more tactile articulation and am currently enjoying breathing life into wet clay.  

Tim Lodge

My art is based on, and stems from, a very happy childhood I had in the North Downs of Hampshire, UK.  I like to paint beautiful things and that helps me feel better.  Often something ‘lights up’ in my mind before I start a picture and when that Happens things work out well.  I use my own ideas.

My work is inspired by walks in the landscape. It reflects my attraction with and enjoyment of the different landscapes, capturing a sense of place through the combination of collected images and materials, with a suggestion of mood and atmosphere.
