My work is heavily influenced by, and aims to capture emotional experiences within landscape of both rural Shropshire & travels further afield. Semi abstract, textural painting forms the basis of work and layers are built mostly in paint but often with the addition of textiles. Many works are reproduced as giclee prints and greeting cards. Small items of mixed media jewellery are produced, each one being a small original painting in itself to be worn and treasured. My studio in Jackfield is both my workspace and my gallery. Visitors are welcome to visit, see what’s on the easel or workbench and view a wider selection of my work.
Painting and printmaking are my preferred media and I use both to create layers and depth in my work. The subject matter is my response to the environment, more abstract than representational and can be landscape, building, floral or abstract. Colour and design are strong elements in the work.

Tim Hebbard is a painter working mostly in oils and gouache, based at his studio in Bewdley. His focus on art began at 15 when he attended classes for artistically talented pupils at Dudley School of Art. After leaving school he enrolled on a course to study Fine Arts at Wolverhampton College of Art from 1958 to 1963, becoming ‘Student of the Year’ in 1961, and being subsequently awarded a Travelling Scholarship. Following graduation he began a 30 year teaching career in secondary and further education. In 2005 he retired to Brittany in France and was able to become a full time painter with his own atelier. During 14 years in France, he produced a rich variety of paintings inspired by the landscape and coast, his observation of the people and the environment, physical and cultural, in which he lived. He exhibited locally in one man shows and was associated with groups of artists exhibiting throughout France.
