water feature 4Although he is more well know these days for his work in the sustainability area, Tim Darby actually started his career as a Sculpture, and his first degree was in Fine Arts.

Tim has used this background for most of his life in very practical ways - from working as a stonemason, to creating amazing wrought iron beds and furniture. While major injuries and operations to his knees, elbows and shoulders mean he is unable to continue with that more physical  work, he does enjoy producing some beautiful copper sculptures- from pond features to showers, desk lamps to cupboard handles.

Fiesta 2012He is also a pretty talented visual artist and creating the Hulbert Street Sustainability Fiesta poster each year has provided him with the opportunity to share his sustainability story visually - from images of street kids selling honey in the cargo bike to cycling families milking goats!

If you are interested in any of these images we have A3 prints and cards available and can order larger prints for you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMost recently Tim has enjoyed dabbling in sculpture again, working with sand. He has quickly become one of the best sand sculptures in WA, with recent commissions completed with  local councils such as Fremantle, Geraldton and Bunbury, local community groups such as Dardanup Bull and Barrel Festival, private companies such as Laneway Music Festival  and private commissions.

Tim can sculpt anything in sand, and you are certain to get a piece with a whimsical twist! We recommend you have a look at his sand sculpture website - sandsculpturewa

Whether with paint, sand or copper, Tim loves nothing more than creating beautiful practical art for individual clients.

And Tim is now a musician as well. Having sung with the world renowned Lost Quays for many years, Tim has now started his own band, called the Alfalfa Males

Here’s a question for you....

What do goats, gaffa tape, Donald Trump, sloth poop, global warming, and a cross gender chicken called Suzie all have in common?

They are all part of the menagerie of topics put under scrutiny by the Alfalfa Males in their quest to make sense of the world through song!!

Folk duo Tim Darby and Donald Wilson win hearts and engage minds wherever they play with their mix of quirky humour, open hearted intimacy, beautiful vocal harmonies and eclectic musical style.

Their easy banter and authentic stage presence reaches out to embrace the audience in a mingling of stories, humour and lyrical melodies.

Unconstrained by tradition or genre the Alfalfa Males follow their melodious meanderings wherever the mood takes them in the moment.

Oh yeah.....they also play (in order of size but not necessarily importance) bass, guitar, ukulele, a smattering of violin and....if the occasion calls for it....garden shears.
