Tim was born in 1940 in England. He moved to France in 1960 to Biot close to Antibes with Jacqueline (1933-1989). They were among the first to work porcelain on an artistic level. In this context, Tim continues to give workshops on certain facets of the sculpture. Their work resulted in several large wall works (among other things, the port of Cavalaire in the Var), a series of 4 large sculptures for the hospital Lapeyronie Montpellier, parts of large size for public spaces and orders of private collectors. They decide to leave the French Riviera for the Hérault and settle in Brissac. Since the death of Jacqueline in 1989, Tim works alone, emphasizing in his research on a bronze-porcelain juxtaposition and much more. Tim is sculptor, painter and ceramist (text Galerie Moulin Neuf).
