Company History

Chalk Works is the trading name of Tim Chalk’s studio. Tim has been working in this field since 1982, previously in the partnership 'Chalk and Grime", and then, since 1994, as a sole trader as "Art in Context", before adopting the trading name "Chalk Works" in 1998. Tim Chalk’s general work ethos has its roots in his beginnings in Community Art. He believes strongly that the enjoyment of art and high quality artwork should be a part of everyday life, not confined to art galleries and private collections. This and his interest in history as a source of artistic inspiration, based on the search for a collective sense of community identity, is what has drawn him into a close involvement with the Museum Sector. With a wealth of experience behind him, Tim has been delivering cost effective, high quality results on time, within budget over many years
