Bernadett Timko is a figurative artist who was born in Hungary in 1992. She began her art education at the Secondary School of Fine Art of Nyíregyháza, Hungary before moving to London to study figurative painting, sculpture and printmaking at The Heatherley School of Fine Art.
Bernadett works from life and it fascinated by people and the atmosphere their presence, or indeed absence can create. However, her paintings are not just limited to putting people at the focus – her subject can be anything as long as it makes her feel a certain kind of way, she has a connection with it and it mirrors her state of mind in that particular moment. Bernadett believes that every painting is abstract so she doesn’t try to perfect them, she strives to make the process of painting visible in all of her works as she believes making art is all about the journey
She regularly exhibits at Mall Galleries and received many prizes and awards including the Winsor & Newton Young Artist Award first and second prize, Phyllis Roberts Award, Lynn Painter-Stainers Young Artist Award and the Prince of Wales Portrait Award.
