Tim Oliver


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

Sketchers Lubbock.

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 Society and Plein Air Painters of New Mexico.
