“Invented Natural History Illustration” or “Magical Realism” are phrases that Timothy Chapman uses to describe his paintings. Visually, the work borrows from various animal portraiture and old scientific illustration, but his art reflects a surrealism not observed by the scientist.

Timothy’s paintings can be seen at Giabbe-Fritz Gallery in Santa Fe, Wilde Meyer Gallery in Scottsdale, the U.S. embassies in Burma and Tunisia, and on his website, timothychapmanstudio.com
