With over 15 years of experience making art, Jo Richards is an established New Zealand Artist known for her concise style. Her work has been described as calming with lovely lines and flow. Form and shadow are pivotal in her sculpture work, and a limited palette in her paintings. Her glass work merges both colour and form. Themes of movement such as birds and boats are threaded throughout her work as well as shapes inspired by organic forms particularly leaves, water, trees and landscapes. Occasionally objects of function also come to life in the studio such as crescents and keys.
