Carving stone is how I started. It was very simple stuff, about things seen in my immediate environment, or sometimes artifacts from ancient civilizations or found things that engaged me, and still do.
Following my first London show, a very nice thing was written about me and which has really kept me going:
I first experienced Andrea’ work at the Kettles Yard Gallery Open in 1996 and later at her one person show of sculpture, drawings and prints at Christopher Hull Gallery, London SW1. I am struck by her ability to imaginatively co-ordinate her feelings for nature with her sensitive awareness of the energy of her chosen materials, the results being sculptures which are sensitively felt, full of subtle surprises, and which carry a breath of life within them. They are telling, beautiful works which resonate over time. In my view, she is a sculptor of rare distinction
