Richardson Turner received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1968. In 1981, he started his own construction company for commercial buildings. During this time, he continued to create images through painting, sculpture, lithography, screen printing, ceramics, and photography. Since 2003, Turner has taken classes at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, including painting and drawing with Michiko Itatani, Moe Brooker, and Emily Brown; clay with Andrea and John Gill; and lithography with Beauvais Lyons. His work has displayed in McGhee Tyson Airport and the Emporium Center in Knoxville as well as in various regional juried shows.
