'Born in Sydney, Tim Storrier gained early recognition as an artist when in 1968 at the age of nineteen he became the youngest recipient of the prestigious Sir John Sulman Prize for genre painting at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
His father was a stock dealer and grazier and Tim grew up with his twin sister on the family property, Umagarlee, near Wellington in rural New South Wales. In 1967 he enrolled at the the National Art School in Sydney and commenced studying graphic design, after two years he abandoned his studies to take up a position as a graphic artist at the Australian Broadcasting Commision.
Storrier has travelled extensively; in 1972 he was the artist in residence at Owen Tooth Memorial Cottage, Vence, France. In 1976 he journeyed with artist John Olsen, naturalist Vincent Serventy and art dealer Stuart Purves to observe and paint the flooding of Lake Eyre in South Australia.'
