Tyrone Lewis was raised in a family of artists.  His maternal grandfather, Hans Hubbard, a respected Fort Worth artist, settled near Mena, Arkansas, and always welcomed his grandson into his studio.  Thus did Tyrone learn to appreciate and create art.

Desiring to pursue an artistic career, he graduated with a B.F.A. degree from the Memphis College of Arts, and then worked as an interior designer for residential and commercial properties and as a fashion coordinator for Federated Department Stores.  Always he painted.

Tyrone has been featured in multiple regional juried shows throughout the United States.  Galleries in Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Georgia, Arizona and New Mexico have featured his works, as has Southern Accents Magazine, The Collectors Guide of New Mexico, and others.  Tyrone's paintings have also been purchased by numerous corporations for their archival collections, as appreciable investments.

Tyrone, lives in western Arkansas with his wife Barbara and daughter Alexis, where, in addition to their art, they breed Egyptian Arabian horses.

Of his work Tyrone says, "Having been influenced by my grandfather, I found my  first endeavors in the visual arts, were portrayals of the landscape.

Over the years I have identified myself with various imagery and varied venues, yet I always come back to the landscape and its forms.  I know not the reason other than the fact that the melody is always in perfect harmony, regardless of conditions, which leads one to ponder how and why and who or what is responsible."

Tyrone's wonderful use of color and light, his paintings faithfully represent the ever changing landscapes of the American horizon.  Traveling throughout the United States, he faithfully brings life to his canvases, freezing in time the beauty of nature.  With an understanding drawn from the roots of his childhood, molded with appreciation of art and nature, he has matured to become a serious, dedicated, fine artist of significance.

Sadly, Tyrone Lewis passed away in 2014.
