Tim studied fine art at Brighton before moving to London and establishing himself as a photographer, working in several industries including film, advertising, publishing, architecture and latterly fine art.
In more recent years Tim has gained a reputation as an accomplished painter. After studying with RBA member Colin Orchard he has exhibited widely and been a prize winner and exhibitor in several prestigious judged shows, recently, Grayson Perry chose him to be in the main room at the RA Summer Show, The Threadneedle Prize, The Discerning Eye, The New English Art Club, The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize, and the RBA Open, winning the Gordon Hulson Memorial Prize for: Draughtsmanship, Variety and Exploration.
He presently paints full time based at Delta House Art Studios in South West London.
Moved by the disquiet of the forgotten space, the abandoned building or a night time petrol station, Tim Goffe’s painterly style is a balance of precision and expressive mark-making, and has developed from his desire to translate, fleeting moments of observed malaise into oil paintings. He looks for beauty in the ordinary, and meaning in the banal. Themes develop but light is always the starting point .
