Timothy Chambers' father taught him that "portraiture is the king of art," due to the value of a person. When we have to say goodbye to a child- there is not much in life that brings more grief. Timothy Chambers has used his gift and empathy to give parents something to remember their children that, in their words, "gives us much to remember our child by."
Timothy approaches his posthumous children's portrait with much reverence and gentleness as he learns first-hand from the parents about their child. Of all his commissions, these are his most precious. His clients look at Tim as a big part of dealing with their loss.
You can see in the examples above the gentleness and life captured in his posthumous portraits of children.
