Artist Timothy Tim Davison with Nebraska state sign on highway with painting of western box turtle

Timothy Davison is a wildlife artist. Since growing up in Wahoo, Nebraska, he has traveled to all 50 states while working with non-profits, zoos, and wildlife rescues. In doing so, he has worked with a multitude of animals and spoken to over a million people about wildlife conservation and sustainability.

Today, he uses cameras and canvases to help tell the stories about wildlife that fascinate and inspire. His artwork has helped raise money to benefit various non-profit organizations and contributed to the conservation of critically endangered species like penguins, elephants, and orangutans.

Tim and his wife, Stephanie Arne have collaborated on a number of projects, in 2019, they created the short film, Saving Penguins | The African Penguin Nest Project.  They also spent several years living on the road in a tiny house on wheels while spreading awareness at universities, museums, zoos, and festivals about wildlife conservation on a daily basis through living more sustainably at home.

Today, they live in Eureka, Missouri, where Tim creates art and Stephanie is the Director of Education at the Endangered Wolf Center.  They have also hosted fundraisers (both in-person and online) to help a number of endangered species and conservation organizations. Their favorite events are galas in which Tim paints live (in a tux, of course) and Stephanie gives a talk.

Inter-Species Collaborations

In 2016, Tim started painting portraits of animals on canvases they started.

A great opportunity for enrichment, and a great way to raise money for conservation. In this case, Raven the Chimpanzee from the Maryland Zoo painted the background in color, and then Tim painted her portrait on top. This original collaboration painting was auctioned to benefit the American Association of Zoo Keepers chapter at the Maryland Zoo.

Just before the pandemic, Tim painted this 24″ x 24″ canvas with Mara the Steller Sea Lion at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska. It was auctioned off at the Annual ASLC Gala, that Stephanie was a guest host. While this painting accounted for only a portion of the funds raised, the event made a record amount of money for the center (even more than the previous year, hosted by Jack Black.)

Below, are other original paintings and collaborations that have helped raise money for wildlife conservation organizations.
