TIM MORGAN MRBS
British born sculptor Tim Morgan studied at Edinburgh College of Art and at the Royal College of Art in London. He was awarded the Andrew Grant Postgraduate Scholarship at Edinburgh College of Art and the Borders Group Prize at the Royal Collage of Art.
Tim is experienced in designing and building large-scale sculptures, architecture design and in teaching. He has been commissioned by, among others, the Contemporary Art Society and Cass Sculpture Foundation where examples of his work are exhibited.
While at the Royal College of Art he was offered an internship with James Carpenter Design Associates, a downtown Manhattan architectural practice, widely respected in particular for their innovative and creative use of glass. During his time with JCDA, Tim had the opportunity to work on a number of exciting projects in the USA and London.
In October 2003, Tim started work on the Boat Villa project, a beautiful stone-built cottage in the scenic Wye Valley in Wales, in need of significant renovation. This project gave Tim the opportunity to translate his knowledge of glass, architecture and design, as well as his skills as a maker and designer into building a contemporary living space within a traditional frame.
The project was completed and the property sold in August 2006. At the end of 2006, Tim took a break from work to fulfil a dream; riding his motorbike solo from Montreal, Canada to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Tim arrived in Buenos Aires in June 2007 having ridden 23,000 miles across twelve countries.
In 2008 Tim took part in the Chelsea Flower Show, collaborating with gold medal award winning garden designer Phil Nash to design and build sculpture for his show garden ‘Elevations’. In 2009 Tim was the invited artist at Visual Arts Scotland, held in the Royal Scottish Academy and in 2011 Tim opened his studio and exhibition space in London SE1. He was elected a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 2014.
Tim lives in North London with his partner Nushka and their daughter Allegra.
