HERALDRY

From an early age, Tim’s ambition was to become a heraldic artist and he has worked at HM College of Arms for 35 years. He has designed five oak carvings to go above the doors of the Heralds’ offices. Heraldry features in much of his work, including many commissions for the Royal Family and the City of London Livery Companies. In 2022 he was commissioned by the College of Arms to design a new Royal Cypher for His Majesty King Charles III, the first for over seventy years.
