Timothy Greenwood was born in Chatham, Kent on 11th December 1947. He trained at the Camberwell School of Art in South London becoming full time artist in 1968. He was a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA) and was a founder member of The World Pheasant Association. Tim always had a passionate interest in birds and animals and all his life was able to translate this into detailed paintings in several art mediums and experimented successfully with techniques like dying art paper with brews of nettles or tea to achieve a background tone that he wanted for a particular painting. For several years he exhibited his etchings at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition where his limited editions were invariably oversubscribed. In 1977 he had a one man show at the Tryon Gallery and four years later he had a joint exhibition again at the Tryon with the well -known sculptress Sally Arnup. In 1985 he held an exhibition of Kenyan wildlife paintings in Nairobi. Tim was particularly well known for his etchings. The ancient art of etching is a dying one amongst artists today. Tim had his own presses.
