This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information, submitted October 2012, is from the artist.

Tim Breaux was born in Franklin, Louisiana in 1963. He spent his early years in the central gulf region of south Louisiana where he gained an appreciation for the "old ways" and communal experience lived by the preceding generations. He moved to Monroe, Louisiana in 1969 and eventually received a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy in 1986 from the University of Louisiana, Monroe. 

In 1995 he and his family moved to Rogersville, Missouri where he began an exploration of the history and lifestyles of the Ozarks.  He became intrigued by the historical context of the area, the natural beauty and the rugged terrain that stood in stark contrast to the flat land of Louisiana.  At several times along the way he was exposed to the fine art of the old masters. 

Through the techniques and application of pigment on the canvas, they provided a commentary of the lifestyle and social condition of their time. These artists combined the technical, analytical and historical elements in a way that communicated aesthetically.  To Tim it was the ultimate in communication.
 
While Tim Breaux is primarily a studio painter who focuses on Midwest regionalism, he also devotes a large portion of his time painting en plein air in Missouri, Arkansas, New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona.  These forays to the mountains and deserts generally result in several western pieces each year.
 
Tim has had several one man and group show in the Midwest. Tim Breaux lives and paints on his family farm in Rogersville, Missouri with his wife Nancy, daughter Ellie and son Carter.

Artist Statements:
 
"No art is original - it is a copy or interpretation of the original work provided by the ultimate artist and creator, God. While I enjoy studying the work of other artists and their interpretation of nature, I ultimately return to the original work created by God where I can smell the air and drink the water and be in His presence. He is the only teacher that can give us all we need; the material, inspiration and ability.  I attend His workshop as often as I can."
 
"My early influences were John James Audubon and the Hudson River School. Over time I have developed a special appreciation for the style and technique of George Inness. While I am largely self taught, I owe a special debt to John Pototschnik who continues to mold, mentor, and encourage me in the pursuit of this dream. " .
 


Biography from Hawthorn Galleries Inc.:
Artist Statement:

"I am a pharmacist and art is my narcotic.  My early years were formed in the Cajun culture of southern Louisiana.   My grandfather and great grandfather were both blacksmiths on the Katy plantation and my father was the first generation to work off of the plantation. This family heritage of hard work and communal life has molded my character and provides inspiration for my work.

A longstanding appreciation for two dimensional art, especially the Hudson River School, eventually inspired me to try my hand at oil painting. In each piece of artwork I see an endless opportunity for exploration of light, form, and emotive description. By creating two dimensional art I am able to discover and describe a sense of time and place imbued with emotion.  I can often describe more of what inspires me with a few strokes of the brush than I can with words.

My technique is varied, consisting primarily of those “borrowed” from old and new masters.  Observing their work has taught me a better understanding of composition and how the eye sees art.  This has resulted in more contrast in my work and a more refined center of interest in some pieces.  I am employing more geo-metrics in my work, lost and found edges, and the play of light across form to add visual interest.

My styles include en plein air, alla prima and studio paintings from resource photographs. A few paintings are technique studies of the old masters I admire.
