Artist and archeologist, Tim Roberts received a B.A. in art, anthropology and sociology from Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kansas, in 1985, and went on to receive an M.A. in archeology from the University of Tulsa in 1988. Mr. Roberts spent several years traveling the country in support of his career as an archeologist before settling down in Fort Davis, Texas in 2001. He continues to work as an archeologist with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department by day, but paints and draws by night. Mr. Roberts says of his art:
"There is one rule of thumb that governs my work as an artist--it has to be something that I genuinely want to do, something that will maintain my interest from beginning to end. To accomplish this, I look to a variety of inspirations, styles, and media to transform my creative thoughts into something tangible, be it a drawing, a painting, or some other form of art. If I am successful in my efforts, then the creative process is not only a positive, relaxing experience for myself, but I think it also results in a better quality work of art that can be appreciated by others."
