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
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.”
We were very honored for Tim to have been asked to create the cover of the 75th Anniversary edition of Western Horseman.
We have already pre-sold over 100 prints of "REFLECTIONS OF A PASSING DAY" and well over half of the edition has been spoken for.
It has just been printed and the prints are shipping now; canvases and giclées will come shortly. Hurry to get your copy of this momentous commemorative print!
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
