Mindy Timm’s art is all over the place. But that’s how the Phoenix artist likes it.

As a creator, Timm is a Swiss Army knife. Her studio shows off elaborate clay moldings, while her living room displays T-shirts. Her walls are adorned with her vibrant paintings of cacti, skeletons and a cartoonish rocket that sort of looks like a goldfish.

“I do so many different things,” Timm says. “I’m constantly between painting, and sewing [and] drawing, and I need to make a piñata here real quick. Just another day.”

Timm’s artistic trademark is explosive colors all jammed together.

“It’s all the colors,” Timm says with a laugh of her preferred color scheme. “I like bright. The hardest projects for me is when a client wants something very toned down. I can do it, but it’s not my thing.”
