Experience of Tim Decker
Grew up in Brodheadsville, a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania and studied Media Communications at East Stroudsburg University. Tim never expressed much interest in art, only taking two art classes to fill his college schedule with less demanding classes.Then in 2009, he woke one morning after having a dream that would change the course of his life. Tim dreamed that he was speed painting on a beach boardwalk, though he had never heard of speed painting up until that point. He woke that morning, bought a gallon of paint, and painted his first portrait…none other than Mr.T! Thus began his journey…
It was something that came naturally, as if it was what Tim was meant to do. He picked up two brushes, one in each hand, and began painting with them at the same time. It took no time to adjust, it was as if he had been painting his entire life. He quickly realized this was his passion and hasn’t put the brushes down ever sense.
“It truly is a dream come true to be able to do what I love for a living. I followed my dreams (literally), dropped everything I was doing, and went for it.” – Tim Decker
