On Monday 16th September at 6.30pm at Chelsea Old Town Hall, the designer Sue Timney will give an illustrated talk about her life and work.
Sue has worked in Britain, Europe and Japan for over 40 years creating interior projects celebrating her own brand of exotic classicism under the Timney Fowler and Sue TIMNEY banners. Her work ranges from commercial and residential interior architecture to product-design for interiors, and fashion.
Sue has always seen Chelsea as her work base since she attended the Royal College of Art in 1977 and began living in Chelsea then. On 16th September Sue will talk to us about her peripatetic childhood and take us on her visual adventures and journey since that time.
Timney Fowler, the business she set up after leaving the RCA, had one of the most iconic shops on the Kings Road for over 17 years. Sue has been a pro-active and committed member of the Chelsea Arts Club (and member of the ladies’ snooker team) for more than 25 years, while her work often takes her to the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour, a most valuable international design resource. She also teaches at the KLC school of design there.
Born in North Africa, from an Anglo-Indian and Jewish-Scots heritage, Timney came to live in UK at age fifteen.
After studying Sculpture at Newcastle and gaining an MA at Edinburgh University she attended the RCA. She was made a Visiting Professor and Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Art in 2007 and also holds the Textile Institute’s Design Medal and was nominated for the Prince Philip Designer’s Prize by the Royal College of Art.
