Joanna Bird is an international Gallery owner, Curator and Consultant with over thirty years experience in the art world as a practitioner, agent and commentator.
Joanna offers comprehensive collecting and curatorial advice, from searching out the ideal work of art for her client through her extensive knowledge of the field, to arranging a bespoke commission. She frequently collaborates with architects and interior designers including David Mlinaric, to ensure the perfect setting for a collection. The frisson of juxtaposing the old and the new is a constant in her capacity as curator, further demonstrating how Decorative Arts can enrich the world of Fine Art.
In 2012 Joanna set up the Joanna Bird Foundation, with a mission to support emerging talents and to explore new concepts in the field of the decorative arts. Marking the line, ceramics and architecture, was the Foundation’s inaugural touring exhibition followed recently by the film Richard Batterham, Master Potter.
