Tim Scoggins graduated from Colorado Institute of Art in 1981, and immediately began his career as an illustrator. After freelancing for 4 years Tim was hired as the staff artist for Copley Los Angeles Newspapers. He worked at the newspaper and also continued taking on a wide variety of freelance illustration assignments. After 10 years, and about one thousand illustrations later, Tim left the newspaper and went freelance full time. At this time he started diverting more and more of his attention to large scale mural work, and also started taking on fine art comissions (mostly portraits). Over the past 2 decades Tim has continued to take on assignments of all varieties in both the commercial and fine art worlds, but always coming back to his first true love and passion, portraits. Having just this year begun a series of native american indian portraits on wood panel, this marks a true turn toward full time commitment to fine art for Tim, and his association with Fine Art America.
