Tim Harmon was born in June of 1946 and has lived in Arizona his whole life. He worked on a ranch in New Mexico for some time, yet has done and continues to do most of his cowboying in Arizona.
“To this day, I truly love to work with cattle and horses. In the rugged country of Tonto Basin, Arizona, on a small ranch is where you’ll find me, workin’ my horses and cattle.
Having a pencil in my hand and drawing what I see, is something I’ve always loved to do. I did try painting and found I was slightly colored blind, so that didn’t work out too well. From the time I was a young boy, I whittled wood and felt real natural workin’ with three dimensional form. Once I started working with clay, I knew that was it……I was hooked for good!
As a mostly self-taught sculptor, my first hand cowboying experiences greatly contributed in my ability to tell the tales of the workin’ cowboy life through my sculpture.
My wife, Frankie, and I enjoy meeting people as we travel and show my work.”
