Tim Steward is based in Oxford and trained in classical drawing at Lavender Hill Studios in London. He initially studied Town and Country Planning at Cardiff University in response to his interest in urban design and building conservation.
Often associated with his depictions of classical architecture, Tim's visceral style has been built on working outside in specific locations for an extended period of time. This has led to drawing projects of some of the world's most iconic buildings, including the Radcliffe Camera in Oxford, St Paul's in London, and the Colosseum in Rome.
He exhibits around the country with Whitewall Galleries and Clarendon Fine Art, and has had solo exhibitions in London, Cheltenham, York and Bath. He also holds an annual exhibition of his work in Oxford alongside drawings and paintings by his wife, Mary Chamberlain.
Tim's work is on display in over fifty public venues, and includes sixty drawings in the Old Parsonage Hotel in Oxford. He has undertaken commissioned work for a host of clients including Rick Stein, Oxford University Press, Caspian, Sanctuary Group, The Curious Group of Hotels, The Country Pub Design Company, Exscientia, Kingsway Music and Ecclesiastical.
He currently moves between North Cornwall and Oxford, engaging much of his time drawing the cliffs and sea around Tregardock Beach, south of Tintagel.
