Tim Bradford moves with his family between North London and Co. Clare in Ireland, depending on weather patterns and how his trees are doing. His paintings are heavily influenced by the Doolin shoreline, Venezuelan rural art, Egyptian funerary portraits, Irish pubgoers and East Midlands skies. If pressed he would describe his work as pop folk art. His main occupation is as a cartoonist/ illustrator, most of his work being for The Guardian and the football magazine When Saturday Comes. He has also written three heavily illustrated non-fiction books. His latest, Small Town England, was published in April 2010.
