Born 2001, Tim started painting at the age of four.
Prompted by the sights and sounds of his father's studio practice, Tim has shown an enduring interest in creative construction. All forms of visual arts interest him.
His Father, Peter Hackett a well known Auckland artist has pushed, pulled, bribed and coaxed his son into producing a large body of work Tim and his family is justifiably proud of.
Interest in Tim and his work, both in paint and digital media has increased so that he has been rewarded with dealer gallery representation in his home town of Auckland, New Zealand.
