Featured Artist: Tim Cox

Cox's big break came when he drove 200 miles to meet with Cowboy Artists of America member Grant Speed who was so impressed with Tim's work that he suggested he take advanced lessons from well renowned art instructor William Whitaker at Brigham Young University.  Cox spent three months at BYU painting six hours a day five days a week, while working in the evenings to pay for his art instruction.  After his time at BYU, Cox worked many odd jobs such as a gas station attendant and mesquite wood salesman, while continually improving his technique.  His lifelong dream of becoming a member of the Cowboy Artists of America came true in 2007, when he was inducted as a full member of this prestigious organization. Since that time, Cox has developed a masterly style that is focused on the accurate portrayal of the modern day American cowboy and ranching culture.  Cox combines this accuracy with precise draftsmanship, which gives his work a distinctive edge and sets him apart from many of his fellow Western artists.  He has gone on to win prestigious awards from both the Cowboy Artists of America and the Prix de West annual exhibitions.  His work is in the permanent collections of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Booth Museum of Western art, and the Old West Museum in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
