The Artist

Tim Dowling, born and raised in St. Maarten, left to pursue a career in Art & Animation in Ireland.

He has worked with studios such as Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Cartoon Saloon and more. Animated Shows like "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends", "El Tigre", "The Amazing World of Gumball" and "Wildernuts" are just a few of the popular titles he has worked on.


Tim studied classical drawing and painting, as well as illustration and writing. His paintings have been exhibited in Ireland, Italy and Russia. He has published two titles "Art by Tim" and a picture book "The Truth about Monsters" which has been picked up and translated into German by Bohem, a German publishing house. 


You will find Tim at his Gallery and Art school "ArtHouse St. MaARTen" in St.John’s Estate. Here you can buy his original art, prints, book, makes portraits and teaches Art Classes.  

Tim’s style and influence comes from working in the field of animation for over 15 years. He has worked as an animator, animation director, character designer, concept artist and now he writes and illustrates children’s picture books. Inspiration comes from nature, fantasy, local folktales, his childhood and from friends and family. 

“It was always a silent dream to have an art gallery where I could permanently show my paintings and creations, but also to have a space where I could teach art and encourage local children, teenagers and adults to tap into their own well of creativity.”

“I welcome you to my gallery and to my art classes. Together we will make something magical!”
