At the age of 55, Tim Ames decided to try painting as a hobby.  Aided by a library of books by great artists and teachers, he is a “self-taught” artist, specializing in landscape and waterscapes of Central and Northern New York and Cape Cod. Tim’s paintings have received over 80 awards in local, national and international art show competitions including numerous 1st place ribbons and 5 Best of Show Awards.

In addition to his painting avocation, Tim has spent most of his free time establishing an Artist Co-op in Oswego, NY, providing a venue for local artists to display and sell their work.
