American-born, Canada-based painter, sculptor and printmaker, Tim Haley is a mid-career artist working in various FIGURATIVE styles.
Trained at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, he was also the owner of Objets d’Art Fine Arts Gallery, in addition to being a sculptor of Bronze, Steel, Wood and Stone, a painter in Oils, Acrylics and Watercolours, a Fine Art Printmaker, Photographer and Goldsmith. He also owned and operated the Vancouver Island Bronze Arts Foundry, the only commercial bronze arts foundry on Vancouver Island at that time. Tim and his wife Sekai now own and operate “Simply Timeless” a Jewellery and Fashion Boutique set on Fourth Street in Down Town Courtenay, B.C.
Tim began his interest in art at the age of eight under the tutelage of his Great Aunt who was a Watercolourist. In high school he was inspired by his art teacher to take up art as a possible profession which in turn was his decision to do so. Living in Nova Scotia, Tim found a lack of jobs and began working in Silver and Lapidary to produce jewellery for tourism. He and his family moved to Connecticut in the United States in the late 1960’s where he worked as a goldsmith on a production line building watch cases. At this time he became interested in carving ivory. He later moved briefly to Boston where he worked for a master goldsmith. In 1969 Tim found himself in Toronto working as head designer and Model maker for the largest Jewellery charm manufacturer in Canada “Rembrandt Charms”. His ivory carving became more and more advanced to the point where in 1978, he was commissioned by the Bishop of the diocese of Los Angelis to create a bishop’s crosier out of ivory, gold and yew wood. He started to collect art in the late 1970’s. It was because of this that he got interested in the techniques of printmaking as this is what he was predominately collecting. Because of his sculpture, in the later part of the 1990’s, Tim was invited to participate in three different international invitational out of doors sculptural exhibits in Holland and Belgium. He was the only Canadian representative to these worldwide showings. Tim is a firm believer in “By the seat of his pants”.
He has exhibited in Canada, United States and Europe. His work is in collections in Canada, United States, Philippines, and Zimbabwe and in many countries throughout Europe including England, Nederland’s, Belgium, Spain and Scandinavia.
