“Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the imagination, and encourages people to go further.”
- Keith Haring
Tim McKay is a Denver-based artist who works in acrylic and mixed media.
Trained as a clinical psychologist with specialties in psychological assessment and the treatment of children and families, McKay is interested in how art can evoke emotion and connection. In addition, McKay worked for over 20 years as a software designer, and within his practice of art applies concepts of software engineering such as accessibility and scalability in creating bodies of work with consistent styles that can be understood both visually and as expressions of sets of requirements.
