Tim Walters grew up in a peripatetic military family, and lived in Okinawa, England, and Germany, as well as many locations in the United States, before making his home in the San Francisco Bay area. He has been making photographs, computer art and music for over thirty years. His work in all media is informed by his lifelong love of science fiction, fantasy, and the surreal, and straddles the boundaries between abstract and concrete, dreaming and waking, intuitive and rational, familiar and strange. He received a M.F.A. degree from Mills College in 1995.
