Artist Statement: 
My work has evolved as my skills have grown. I plan on that evolution to continue. Evolution is crucial to longevity. Balance is too. Balance between function and form, strength and finesse, skill and sense, time-honored tradition and new direction.

After earning a BA in studio arts from the University of Vermont, Timothy went on to work for five years as a custom designer and builder in a two-person shop. Timothy now works out of his own studio, and is influenced by George Nakashima and his use of uniquely-sawn, live-edge wood; Sam Maloof's inclination to the curved surface; Frank Lloyd Wright's eye for balance and overhang; and the Shaker tradition of hard work and simple lines.
