Combining his fashion ability with his artistic ability, he learned the screen print business and starting his own screen print business. While printing t-shirts he decided to express his artistic talent in a broader sense, so he stared a greeting card company, where he created the artwork, verse and packaging. Mr. Winstead hired a national sales representative and was able to service over 200 accounts, from card shops to gift shops. He operated his greeting card business for over 5 years, up until the point where demand exceeded his ability to keep up with growth. Timothé is now finally doing what he enjoys most, painting portraits and presenting his work to the world. He is also at a point where he believes that he can make a difference in the lives of some young artists that have doubts as to how far they can go with their artistic talent. He has founded The Power of Art, a non-profit 501C(3) corporation, which has introduced the “Artistic Expressions” community arts program that will mentor and teach young aspiring artists.
