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 Magazine’s Print Hall of Fame in 2000. Dozens of his limited edition art prints have sold out through the years, some as quickly as 3 weeks. Sales of his popular calendar line which started in 1986 have exceeded four million to date. 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 art, prints and posters have appeared on over 110 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 in Safford, Arizona and grew up in the small farming and ranching community of Duncan, near the New Mexico state line. When only 5 years old, Tim vowed that he “was going to be a cowboy artist” when he grew up. He currently lives in northern New Mexico and is considered one of the great western artists of our time.
In 2003, Tim Cox was honored with one of the most prestigious awards in the world of western art at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, when the National Academy of Western Art chose his painting for the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award which includes a $5,000 cash award plus a gold medal. Cox's “On to Better Pastures” was the judge’s favorite of the over 300 art prints and posters at the 2003 Prix de West Show which featured the works of ninety two highly acclaimed artists. His painting “Along Eagle Creek” was selected as the 2004 winner of the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award.
