Artist Statement

Mark Andrew


Working primarily in stone, wood, and bronze, I create architectural details, bronze hardware, carved entry doors, fireplaces, furniture, and statuary. I excel at bringing the vision of my clients into physical form. At the core of my art is an appreciation of the natural world. I carve flora and fauna in an effort to understand them. I fill myself up with the essence of my subject and interpret it sculpturally, following humbly in the footsteps of the past and keeping an ancient art form alive.
