Timothy E. Hoover
Tim was born on May 12, 1965 in Boise, Idaho. He moved to Newville in 1973, and in the summer of 1983, he was accepted into the Pennsylvania Governor’s School of Arts Program. He attended Kutztown University as an art major, specializing in ceramics, wood and painting. In 1991, sponsored by the American Crafts Council, Tim went to Japan where he studied with master several potters.
In addition to his paintings, he continues to push ceramics with visual imagery of 2-D designs onto a 3-D format. Tim’s work can be found in Carlisle at The Garden Gallery. Tim’s work can be found in a number of private collections in the United States, overseas and the state headquarters for the Comanche Tribe, in Lawton Oklahoma.
“My paintings allow me a tremendous freedom of scale, texture and color. I view ceramics in two ways. First as a bold and even subtle expression of form and second as a canvas that gives the form its final statement of expression. Both media fascinate me, but in different ways.”
