Western Artist Tim Cox


Endless nights of painting until dawn are finally paying off for Tim Cox. He is one of the best known western artists, having been voted into the U. S. Art Magazine¹s Print Hall of Fame - 2000. Dozens of his Limited Edition Prints have sold out through the years - some as quickly as 3 weeks.

Sales of his popular calendar line which started in 1986 are nearing 10 million. One of the best compliments paid to his calendars is that you often see his tear off style calendars complete, late in the year. People will lift off the pages to find the date rather than tear them off!

Tim's paintings have appeared on over 300 magazine covers through the years, and he has been featured in articles in at least 16 different publications, including Southwest Art, Western Horseman, Art of the West, American Cowboy and Beef.

Tim Cox was born in 1957 and raised in the farming and ranching community of Duncan, Arizona near the New Mexico state line. In a 1975 high school English class essay he wrote that one of his fondest wishes was to be a member of the Cowboy Artists of America. His wish was granted in 2007 when he was invited to join the prestigious group. After serving on the Board of Directors, he is now the current President.

Recently, Tim was Cox was recently voted winner of the Readers Choice award for Best Living Western Painter in True West magazine's 2011 Best of the West poll. He also was honored to have been asked to create the cover of the 75th Anniversary edition of Western Horseman. Tim has been painting professionally since 1975 and has received numerous awards including the 2003 “Prix de West Purchase Award” and “Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award” in 2004 and 2007 from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. In 2001, he received the “Will Rogers Western Artist Award” for Artist of the Year from the Academy of Western Artists and the “Olaf Wieghorst Best of Show Award” from the Mountain Oyster Club three times. Tim was voted into U.S. Art Magazine’s “Print Hall of Fame” in 2000 and in 2008, Decor Magazine listed him as one of the fourteen “Most Enduring and Successful Poster Artists.”

Tim Cox's work hangs in the permanent collections of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, The Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia and in the Old West Museum in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

While most of his time is consumed by painting, Tim regularly rides and works on various ranches throughout the West. He combines the basic ingredients of color, value, perspective and pleasing design with his desire to be a perfectionist in portraying the real working cowboy. This perfectionism earned Tim the “Ayudando Siempre Alli Award” from the New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association for his contributions to agriculture. Alisa Ogden, President of the Association said: “Along with lifting our spirits, Tim Cox’s special images keep the magic of the cowboy alive for literally tens of thousands of city folks across the nation and around the world.”

Tim is a fourth generation Arizonan, but now resides outside of Bloomfield, New Mexico, where he continues to raise a few cattle and train horses with his daughter Calla and wife Suzie.
