Dustin Timbrook

My name is Dustin Timbrook and I'm an artist working in Huntsville, Alabama. I have a studio in a big, century-old factory space called Lowe Mill that has been converted into work space for dozens of local artists. Last year I quit my day job as a high school art teacher to move into my studio space and make a living off of art alone. It hasn't been easy, but I'm doing alright and I'm doing what I love for a living, so I have no complaints.

I've been drawing, painting, sculpting, and making music and videos since I was a tiny kid. I studied painting at the University of Montevallo, mostly working in oil. Lately though I have been hooked on painting with watercolors, and my work has become very vibrant and lighthearted. I usually work in a stream-of-consciousness manner, making things up and adding to an artwork as I go along - like incredibly detailed doodling. The little vignettes that I paint usually start with a human or animal figure and I build from there. I decide what characters, objects, and environments to add as the scene develops. Leaving the end result of a piece a mystery keeps the painting process fresh and exciting for me. Plus, it results in my paintings being absurd and comical, which is my favorite kind of work to create. I have a website to display, write about, and sell my work.

The internet has been a priceless tool in promoting and marketing my work. Last year I started making funny promo videos to publicize my first solo art show and it worked like a charm (it didn't hurt that they included a super-cute puppy)

The videos got people in a frenzy about my show, and a lot of people came to help me shoot the final promo before the event. This video was shot at Lowe Mill, the old factory where my studio is located.

Since then I've been using video and social media to publicize just about everything I do.

If you want to see more of my work, read about what I'm working on now, or buy some prints or postcards, check out my website. I keep it up to date with all of my work, and sometimes I even use the site itself as a medium for crazy art experiments that you can be a part of.
