Timothy's first solo exhibition at 17 served as a catalyst to start his creative path. Painter, sculpture, musician, photographer, tattooist, teacher and proverbial hewer of wood have all been hats he has worn. Already established as a visual artist, his O-Canada series began as a slight departure in the studio but has become a cross country visual road-trip. A solo exhibition in Trafalgar Square on Canada Day in 2013 gave Londoners a sense of Canada, and Ex-Pats reminders of home. The annual Canada Day Portage Shows have become iconic events to celebrate our people, places, icons and guilty pleasures.
