The Annual John Piper Exhibition
After studying Fashion and Textiles at Gloucestershire College of Art and Design Timothy Morgan-Owen worked for the couturiers, David and Elizabeth Emanuel and also designed for the theatre. He decided to concentrate on his first love, drawing and painting. Specialising in portraits he has painted several high profile personalities in the social, business and political arena.
His training in design also enabled him to curate and mount a series of very successful exhibitions at Renishaw Hall, the Derbyshire home of the Sitwell family. He has accepted several commissions to design and paint heraldic hatchments. In 2012 he embarked on a series of portraits of the author and broadcaster James Sherwood.
In 2013 he was the reserve artist for Sky Arts TV Portrait Competiton.
