Barry Richardson began his creative journey as a woodworking hobbyist. After ending his career with the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams, he began pursuing his passion for creating in earnest. Using skills and equipment accumulated over the years, he mines his experiences from global travel, the beauty of marine life, and nature in general as inspiration for his work. His love for wood began as a child, growing up in the wooded landscape of rural Missouri. This canopy served as his playground, emotional sanctuary, and constant source of wonder.
Artistic furniture, sculpture, carving, and turning are his focus areas for design and creation.
