Timothy Barr was born in 1957, in Hamburg, PA. His mother and father, an artist and a musician, had a great influence on Timothy’s choice to become a painter. From early childhood, Barr had a great desire to become a professional artist. He attended Pennsylvania Governors School for the Arts and the Tyler School of Fine Art at Temple University. Timothy is an avid outdoorsman, and his love of nature is strikingly represented in each of his paintings.
