This Month’s Featured Artists
Tim Roberts received a B.A. in art/anthropology and a B.A. in sociology from Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas, in 1985, and an M.A. in archeology from the University of Tulsa in 1988.
Tim spent several years traveling the United States in support of his career as an archeologist before settling in Fort Davis, Texas in 2000. In Fort Davis, Tim works for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as the Cultural Resources Coordinator for the west Texas region. He also enjoys creating art. Tim says of his art: “There is one rule of thumb that governs my work as an artist—it has to be something that I genuinely want to do, something that will maintain my interest from beginning to end. To accomplish this, I look to a variety of inspirations, styles, and media to transform my creative thoughts into
something tangible, be it a scratchboard etching, a painting, or some other form of art. If I am successful in my efforts, then the creative process is not only a positive, relaxing experience for myself, but I think it also results in a better-quality work of art that can be appreciated and enjoyed by others.”
Tim’s work has been shown in various international, regional, and local exhibitions, and is represented by Catchlight Art Gallery, Alpine, Texas, and by The Rare Find, McPherson, Kansas. Tim was juried into the International Society of Scratchboard Artists in 2012 and is now a Signature Member of the ISSA.

A nature lover since childhood, Theresa is a self-taught artist whose mediums include photography and painting with oils and pastels. Her favorite subjects are landscapes and animals, both wild and domestic. Her connection with animals led to riding horses and many years of working as a dog groomer. She also had the pleasure of working in a veterinary hospital in Brady Texas for eleven years. “It was a very educational and interesting experience.”
Theresa has been visiting the Big Bend region for years and moved to Alpine in September of 2013. Some of her photographs can be seen on local maps and brochures printed by Blue Sky Productions.
Her work has benefited from attending art workshops taught by well-known artists such as, Bob Rhom, Lorenzo Chavez, Doug Braithwaite, and Michael Albrechtsen.
“I could happily spend the rest of my life painting and photographing this beautiful and diverse corner of Texas.”
Theresa is an artist member of the cooperative CatchLight Art Gallery, 117 W. Holland Ave., Alpine TX.
