Timmy's first international art exhibition took place in the scenic abbey of St Benoit near Poitiers (November 2007).
After the Dortoir Des Moines (Monks dormitory) underwent a massive renovation Timmy's artwork was the first to be shown by an overseas artist.
Adventures of the Artist
A collection of 36 pieces from Timmy's adventures around the World - Canada, Australia, North Africa, and Europe. It was a right Mr Bean adventure getting across France in the midst of a national rail strike with roads clogged and transport at a standstill; but it was worth the struggle!
Timmy outside the impressive Dortoir des Moines in St Benoit! Only by invitation!
This way to the paintings!
It's a huge job getting the paintings safely to France by courier!
They all need checking..
David and George are the experts ...
each piece must be in the right place...
and the setting up is a professional operation.
On the medieval beams, George arranges the pinprick illuminations...
