Tim has been with I-Kandy for several years now, but got his start in Alberta. An artist since childhood, Tim used to doodle on anything and everything, later moving on to more refined drawing and painting, and eventually a seat in Fine Arts at the University of Alberta. His interest in tattooing began the way it does for many - getting his own first tattoo. Having painted and drawn for years, tattooing was a new artform for him to explore, and one that could potentially become a career. In the early 2000s, Tim began apprenticing under Stephanie Corvus of Dragon FX in Edmonton, Alberta. Upon completing his apprenticeship, he moved to British Columbia, working for The Fall before finding his way to us.
Tim is well known by clients for his vibrant colour pieces, often whimsical style, and attention to detail. He says he doesn't have any one particular favourite style, rather, he enjoys any piece that requires creativity, stretching his imagination, and collaboration with his clients. He both enjoys and excels at translating their words and stories into works of art, and loves the challenge of designing a tattoo that not only looks good, but looks good on them. He believes that tailoring the art to the person is vital in creating a piece both artist and client can be proud of.
