Tim Frankland was trained at Harrogate and Norwich Schools of Art. In East Anglia, he fell under the influence of Mediaeval art, in particular the 'Ranworth' style, displayed on rood screens at Barton Turf, North Elmham and Southwold. His other influences are: the Flemish artist Rogier Van der Weyden, and the Portuguese painters Nuno Goncalves and Bartolome Bermejo. In his third year at college, he began working in egg tempera and gold on panel, and painted 'The Marriage at K'boro' for his final Diploma show. He exhibits regularly in the Yorkshire area and has had one man shows at The Conway Hall, London: Cartwright Hall, Bradford and recently at the HG4 Gallery, Ripon among others. His interests are all historical. He belonged to three Richard III Societies and was Chairman of one. He is also involved with the Katherine Swynford Society, writing for their magazine. His ambition is to be commissioned to paint a triptych for a cathedral or large church.
