Wood Sculptures from Joey Richardson

British artist Joey Richardson grew up surrounded by trees on a small farm within the heart of Twigmoor Woods in Lincolnshire, England, where her love for wood, nature, fauna and flora developed. In 2005 she was awarded the bursary of the Worshipful Company of Turners of London.

The bursary allowed her to study in America, where turned wood is highly prized as a collectable art. Inspiration grew as she spent time with Binh Pho; she learned to refine her traditional methods and to add new, innovative techniques: piercing, colour and texture. She developed her philosophical view of her work; and with this growth came an increase in her passion for her craft-based art, and a growing fluency in passing on her enthusiasm and knowledge to others.

Joey Richardson has won many medals and prizes including the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust Award (2015). She has exhibited and sold her work at major exhibitions, schools, symposia and galleries in both the UK and the USA, including the prestigious SOFA expo in New York and Chicago where she is represented by Riley Galleries.
