Tim Soekkha studied Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and Law at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. He then worked as a visual artist, a graphic designer, a desktop publisher, a set painter, a producer, a coordinator and a as a salesman trading in antiquities, curiosities and art. Tim also curated a couple of art shows and worked as a freelance para-legal advisor.
After Tim began posting ‘just for fun’ illustrations on websites like They Draw and Cook, Facebook and Instagram he was asked by http://etenuitdevolkstuin.nl/ and http://hungryhus.com/ a.o. to draw illustrated recipes for their blogs and websites.
A conscious effort to make his work as appealing as possible coincided with his favorite way of creating images: he mostly works with pen, ink and watercolors. His deliberate line work is full of vibrant energy providing an organic feel to his work.
Tim has his own style but likes to keep all his works attractive, radiating and captivating in terms of technique, colors and concept.
Tim Soekkha lives and works in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
