Tim Wirth (M.F.A., painting, 2009)
Tim Wirth grew up on a farm in rural Iowa. As a child, Tim enjoyed drawing pictures of people, objects, and gloomy desert scenes. He also liked building things like pinewood derby cars & various inventions that served little to no purpose. The first artist he recalls enjoying was George Catlin. Upon attending Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa, he discovered there were people like HC Westermann and Marcel Duchamp who once existed and made things too. After attending the Savannah College of Art and Design , where he received his MFA in Painting, he relocated to Des Moines, Iowa, where he worked in the plumbing department of a hardware store for a short time. After a year of that, he moved back to his native flat lands of northern Iowa to paint and make things.
