About this Item

176 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. INTERIOR DESIGN. Chronicles the life and career of Sue Timney, one of England's most astounding artists and designers. To say that Timney's work is eclectic is as obvious as calling the sky blue: eclecticism is her signature. If Timney's style is hard to pin down, perhaps it is her peripatetic childhood that has given her a truly global vision. Born in Libya, her father's military career also took her to Germany and Newcastle, England and she cites influences and interests as diverse as the Japanese filmmaker Kurosawa, the beatniks, and Elvis. In addition to 25 years worth of captivating photographs and some never before published drawings, textile designs, and personal artworks, Making Marks is a journey through a fascinating life Ñ from an adventurous childhood and a career launched in Japan, to the opening of the first Timney-Fowler shop in London's hip Portobello area and her successful career as an interior designer and taste-maker. (Key Words: Sue Timney, Interior Design, Sir Paul Smith, Homes, Interiors, Kurosawa, Photography, Beatniks, Elvis Presley). Bookseller Inventory # 71480X1

About this title

Synopsis:

Pointed Leaf Press is proud to announce a monograph on English interior designer Sue Timney. To say that Timney's work is eclectic is as obvious as calling the sky blue: eclecticism is her signature. Perhaps it is her peripatetic childhood that has given her a global vision. Born in Libya, her father's military career took her to Germany and Newcastle, England and she cites influences and interests as diverse as the Japanese filmmaker Kurosawa, the beatniks, and African tribal art. Featuring 25 years worth of captivating photographs and some never before published drawings, textile designs, and personal artworks, Making Marks is a journey through a fascinating life - from a career launched in Japan, to the opening of the first Timney-Fowler shop in London's hip Portobello area, and her successful career as an interior designer. An exhibition at the Fashion & Textile Museum in London is planned for November 2010.

About the Author:

Sue Timney graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1979 and was awarded a Major Travelling Scholarship from the RCA to visit Japan. In 1980 she set up Timney Fowler with Grahame Fowler. In 2003 Sue took over sole ownership of Timney Fowler and licensed the TF Fabric and Wallpaper Collections which she continues to design for today. The Sue Timney Design Practice was also set up at that time to continue work on independent interior commissions and design projects.
