Rick Timmons was born in St. Petersburg
Florida & raised in Dallas Texas where he
attended junior high & high school.  Prior
to attending art school ,  he spent the next
four years doing construction work' along
with traveling throughout Europe and the
Middle East, Canada,  Mexico, and all over
the United States.

After finishing  work at the Art Institute
of Dallas, Timmons joined the Dallas Fire
Department in 1981 ... There he spent the
next 13 years as a firefighter / paramedic,
and a member of the department football,
power-lifting and rodeo teams.
He began being picked up by numerous
southwest art galleries and in 1987, was
chosen to  do commemorative paintings
for the both of the Texas and New York
Firefighters Associations.

In 1994,  he made the tough decision to
retire from the Dallas Fire Department
and pursue fulltime, the love of his life,
his oil portrait painting. It turned out to
be a resoundingly good decision.

With oil portraits along with firefighter
and  equine oil commissions increasing,
Timmons first opened the doors at Loco
Gringo Studios in January of 1996 .. His
oil portraits and oil paintings have since
been accumulated by people from every
walk of life, including celebrities, media
personalities,  business executives, civic
leaders and professional athletes.

His equine and sports art has regularly
shown  at Lone Star Park as well as the
Gallery of Sports Art located within the
Ballpark at Arlington Texas.  His oil art
paintings  have been featured inside the
pages of magazines such as ART NEWS,
along with Southwest Art Magazine and
"Equine Images" and have been sold all
over the United States as well as around
western Europe.
In addition to his commissioned
portrait work Timmons is currently
involved in several mural projects
in the Dallas area for the Matt
Martinez family and projects in
north Oak Cliff for Schenkel -
