Using the most unorthodox materials imaginable, Tim Carroll has become well known for meshing subject matter and medium in a way that "just makes sense." Over the last decade, Tim has used everything from Band-Aids to toothpicks, guitar picks to comic books, feathers to peach pits, and shattered bats to pine tar to make portraits in his unique pop art style.
In great demand for his commissioned collage/mosaic work, Carroll has been, without a doubt, the subject of many conversations online and at various sports-related events for his work with butchered sports cards. It is that niche that has cemented his place in the world of sports art. Tim's work can be found in private collections around the United States and Canada, as well as the Sports Museum of Los Angeles, the National Pastime Museum, and the Ted Williams Museum and Hitter's Hall of a Fame in St. Petersburg, FL. His 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax artwork will be on display in the upcoming "Shoebox Treasures" baseball card exhibit in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.
A self-taught artist that is just scratching the surface of his art career, Tim Carroll recently left the teaching profession to pursue his dream of a full-time art career. He holds a B.A. in elementary education from the University of Mississippi. It was the combination of the journey to that degree, his passion for delivering messages in a way that is easily understood to children, and his love for sport that led him down the path of carving his unparalleled sports art style.
