Timothy Kitz is an accomplished award winning watercolorist whose plein air and studio works reflect an ongoing creative journey producing landscape, coastal and urban scenes of a distinctive style, freshness and fluidity. His appreciation for and highly personal interpretation of the local environment can be traced to influences by the California Scene movement and the early coastal impressionists. A largely self-taught watercolorist, his creative evolution has been informed by a lifetime of passion for the medium through an extensive book collection, exhibition pilgrimages and through workshops.
He received his formal fine arts education from the University of Toledo School of Design and Herron School of Art of Indiana University. He continues to hone his plein air experience and exhibition presence through active participation and exhibitions with the Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains and Seashore, the Valley Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society and the California Art Club.
