Painted Words currently represents Tim Beaumont.
Tim grew up in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire (UK). As a young child, he spent many happy hours drawing and painting his favorite things. It is of little surprise that Tim loved art school. His fascination and curiosity of how shape, color, and line could combine with words to make his world a more entertaining and brighter place captured his imagination. This drove him to pursue a career in the commercial art world, taking him down many avenues of creative learning. The same fascination that inspired him as a boy burns ever so brightly today. Tim’s passion has culminated in him writing and illustrating his first children’s picture book, Dino Express.
