Tim Abel graduated from Minneapolis College of Art and Design’s MFA program with a focus in Printmaking and Installation and also holds an MA in Art Therapy from New York University.

As an artist, Tim Abel is interested in exploring the dimensional potential of paper and non-traditional materials like found fabric and fused plastic to explore the tactile quality of sewing through creating process-based and site-responsive works. He has exhibited his paper and plastic based-installations in soap factories, man-made lagoons and window-front galleries through out the Midwest.

He recently was a recipient of the 2016 Racine Art Museum Artist Fellowship. And starting Fall 2021, is a PhD student in Art Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
