Tim Gustard was a member of The Miniature Art Society of Florida and has won many numerous awards both here and in the USA and his work is in numerous collections both in the UK and around the world. Tim has exhibited at Beckstones since the 1990s and since 2002 every one of his eight one-man exhibitions of his work here have attracted huge interest, both domestic and international, and each time the entire collections were sold in minutes, setting successive records for artist and gallery.
