Speaker Bio

Tim Decker is a nationally touring performance speed painter who paints celebrity and patriotic portraits live in front of a crowd. Each painting takes roughly 4-7 minutes and the whole experience is set to music. He performs at corporate, charity, and private events across the entire country. 

Tim grew up in Brodheadsville, a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania and studied Media Communications at East Stroudsburg University. Decker never expressed much interest in art, only taking two art classes to fill his college schedule with less demanding classes. 

Then in 2009, Decker woke one morning after having a dream that would change the course of his life. Tim dreamed that he was speed painting on a beach boardwalk, though he had never heard of speed painting up until that point. He woke that morning, bought a gallon of paint, and painted his first portrait…none other than Mr.T!  Thus began his journey… 

It was something that came naturally, as if it was what he was meant to do. Tim picked up two brushes, one in each hand, and began painting with them at the same time. It took no time to adjust, it was as if he had been painting his entire life. He quickly realized this was his passion and hasn’t put the brushes down ever sense. 

“It truly is a dream come true to be able to do what I love for a living. I followed my dreams (literally), dropped everything I was doing, and went for it.” — Decker said. 

His strong work ethic and drive to never give up propelled him to become a successful entertainer performing at over 100 events a year for some of the biggest companies and celebrities in the country. His success has also allowed him to contribute to many charitable causes, raising over $500,000 for various organizations over the last year alone, with single paintings selling for as much as $70,000.

“Tim's performance was the 'knock out' we needed to make our 10th Anniversary year a huge success. As you know, it's hard to come up with fresh ideas every year to engage the audience. His performance was truly incredible. He is a terrific showman, and our guests responded immediately with a resounding standing ovation! Tim was SO very easy to work with; he did all he promised and then some.”
