Hello, I'm Tim Charnick and I was born and raised in the beautiful county of West Sussex with its pastoral rolling South Downs and peaceful shores. After leaving school I attended West Sussex College of Art and Design and now work as an an illustrator and Graphic Designer as well as creating my driftwood art.
If you should see me walking along the coast it wouldn’t be unusual for me to have arms full of driftwood which will all be used on my pieces; some for bases, others for roofs, doors or other small details. I also use recycled wood for some of the houses.
“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
