Tim Oliver is a Landscape Architect and owner of a design/build landscape firm in
Lubbock, Texas. He graduated with a Bachelors degree in landscape architecture in
1983 from Texas Tech University.
Tim has always enjoyed drawing and sketching and in recent years has developed a
love of the watercolor medium. He is passionate about communicating the character
and emotion of a place through on-location or 'en plein air' sketching and painting. He is
an award-winning water colorist and founding member and contributor to Urban
While Tim will sketch or paint anything that stirs emotion and passion within him, he is
drawn to things western, rural, gritty and seemingly mundane. Having lived in West
Texas, Northern Arizona and Eastern Canada, Tim draws on his fond memories
and reminiscences of those places in much of his art. Anything evocative of a 'time
long passed by' will always capture his attention.
Tim holds Signature membership in the National Watercolor Society and the Western
Federation of Watercolor Societies. He is an exhibiting member of the American
Watercolor Society, Outdoor Painters Society, Southwestern Watercolor Society, the
GAS Painting Group and the West Texas Watercolor Society. Tim is also an associate
member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, the American Impressionist
