Tim Aanensen, a 38 year old artist from Ocean Grove, has been inspired to express himself through art ever since he was encouraged to draw and paint as a preschooler. He took up photography in high school and then majored in that discipline while at Hamilton College. While studying in London, he took up painting and that led him to pursue his own abstract style which continues to evolve.
Over the years Tim has continued to study painting. His attraction to art led him to conclude that this would be his life’s work.
Tim has exhibited at the Academy of Design, the Belmar Arts Council and at the Arts Alliance in Red Bank. He maintains a studio in Ocean Grove, a town where he has spent many summers visiting with his family. Tim and his wife currently reside in OG.Recently Tim has been inspired by birds, but not in the Audubon sense; instead he finds wonderful visual ideas by observing birds using photographs as well as recalling them from his “imagination.”
His paintings are fanciful and remind us in a way of Chagall or Picasso’s style of seeing the world.Tim works in multiple media including oils, watercolor, pen and ink, acrylics and pastels. He is always producing new works and he is always evolving with his art. He doesn’t like to stand still: “I believe in developing.” Tim is also a photographer, and we hope to show some of his images in the future.
Meanwhile, if anyone is interested in viewing his work, he does sell his paintings. He is looking for a gallery to display his art.
Tim’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org; or on Facebook at Tim Aanensen Fine Art.
Tim’s paintings have a rhythm—reminds me of the samba. If we can accompany Blogfinger photos with music, why not Tim’s paintings?
