Will Storey

With 20 years experience as a teacher of Design, Technology and Art, Will Storey is passionate about the artistic process and appreciates the unique experience that every outcome evokes in its viewer. Working with wood, Will uses a wide variety of techniques, mediums and materials to blend intricate wooden reliefs into unique sculpturally layered artworks. Each artwork embarks on a narrative journey of imagination and mindfulness, where thoughts and feelings are creatively woven into the meticulous illusions of intricate two-dimensional layers. Reliefs are both hand- and laser-cut into sheets of high quality, and sustainable, veneers and plywood. Once each layer has been carefully smoothed, spray painted and finished by hand, you get a glimpse of the three-dimensional impact that creates a multifaceted viewing experience. All layers are permanently bonded with a strong and durable adhesive and finished with a long-lasting UV protective finish. A successful, grassroots crowdfunding campaign allowed Will to build his own studio on the South Coast of England, as well as provided him with the tools necessary to bring his artistic vision to fruition, illustrating the connective tissues between art and community.
