Anji Timlin

Memory and intuition are fundamental to Anji Timlin’s painting. Capturing fleeting moments and memories, she paints expressively in layers, echoing the emotional and geologic strata of places and experiences. Anji conveys her personal sense of joy and flow, making work that is both exuberant and intensely peaceful.
The stark dramatic fact of the Yorkshire landscape is Anji’s main inspiration. As a keen outdoor swimmer, she especially loves the rivers that stitch communities and landscapes together, green corridors running through towns connecting them to wilder landscapes beyond.
She uses Wallace-Seymour materials: acrylic and casein paint, natural ink and gouache. Made in Yorkshire with local pigments and waste gleaned from post-industrial sites, their physical connection to history and landscape is an important part of her practice.
Anji trained at Bradford School of Art, travelled a lot, then came back to raise her children. After working as an educator, textile designer and illustrator, she began painting again in 2018 in response to a mental health crisis.
Anji won the Joan Day Prize for painting 2019, was long listed for the Jackson’s Prize 2021, and part of the Leeds Summer Group Show in 2022. In 2023 she joined Leeds Fine Artists’ group.
